JOPLIN, Missouri -- Rescue crews from Tulsa helped a Missouri family search for their son, Will Norton.

Norton was driving home from his high school graduation when the tornado hit Joplin Sunday evening. His father was in the car with him.

The dad made it out, but Will has not been found.

While Will's family is not totally sure of all the details, they know he was thrown through the car's sunroof and somehow ended up in a hospital.

Norton was then transferred to another hospital, but no one is sure which one.

The Tulsa crew was able to help Norton's family find a clue in the search for their son.

"We came down a road and there was a car, we actually searched all night with a rescue team out of Tulsa and it's actually Will's. It was in the car. There actually wasn't much in the car. We found a cell phone, registration, which is how we know it was the car.  It was really damaged, they had to cut Mark out," said Tammy Presslor, Will Norton's aunt.

The family has set up an email account for anyone who might know where Will is: findwillnorton@gmail.com
