BARTLETT, Tenn. -- Deputies have released new information in the search for missing 14-year-old, Cincere Wray.

According to authorities, Cincere made contact with a friend via Facetime Wednesday afternoon. He confirmed he had his insulin.

Unfortunately, law enforcement said they still don't know where he is. They do not think he is in the Raleigh area and are breaking off from the command center location on Coleman in order to follow other leads.

Cincere was last seen Wednesday morning around 9:30 a.m. in the 4600 block of Northwood Hills Drive.

The 14-year-old's mother told deputies the two were involved in an argument of some kind before he disappeared.

WREG has also learned Cincere was kicked out of school Tuesday. It's unclear if that is related in any way to his running away.

After he left home, his family immediately began searching for him, but were unable to locate him.

They called deputies around 11 a.m. triggering a massive search involving an MPD helicopter, ATVs and K9 units.

Deputies told WREG there was an added sense of urgency due to the fact Cincere is insulin dependent. Initially it was unclear if the teenager had his insulin with him.

We have also learned this is not the first time Cincere has run away, but authorities said "that's neither here nor there for us."

Their main concern, they said was to make sure this young man makes it home safe.

According to the family, Cincere was wearing black pants and shoes, a turquoise windbreaker and carrying a lime green backpack.

If you see him, call deputies.
