The mother of a missing boy from Georgia received good news that he was safe in Long Beach, only to learn later that he had run away again.
Katricia Mitchell of Lawrenceville, Georgia, created a Facebook page, Finding Jacob, to help locate her 15-year-old son, Jacob Terry Mitchell, who has been missing since last week. On the page, Mitchell writes that her son and his 17-year-old girlfriend, Samantha Aldana, were with the girl's aunt and uncle’s home in Long Beach.
Just hours later, though, Mitchell posted that the two were on the run again. "Sam's aunt gave them keys, after having taken the keys away and ensuring their safety, to get belongings out of car and they took off," said the concerned mother on Facebook.
The two teens have been missing since April 27. Samantha Aldana's mother, Norma Aldana, told a local news station, 11 Alive, that when she went to sleep Friday, her daughter took a gold 1996 Toyota Corolla that belongs to Norma and her husband. The car has a Georgia tag number BVE-6905.
Mitchell is especially worried because her son has been diagnosed with depression and is without his medicine. The mother says her son is on a "downward spiral" without his prescription.
"Jacob cares about Sam and does not want her on the run alone," said Mitchell on Facebook. "He also does not like taking his medication because he does not like the effects of the medication."
Jacob has brown eyes and hair and weighs 155 pounds.
