Coraopolis police ask for public's help finding missing 14-year-old boy
Coraopolis police are asking for the public's help in finding a missing 14-year-old boy.
According to senior patrolman Greg Sundin, Monica Johnson reported her son, Jaiden Brown, missing around 2 a.m. Wednesday.
She had last spoken with him on the phone around 3 p.m. Tuesday, after he had gotten home from school and while she was at work, Sundin said.
“He's done this in the past several times,” Sundin said. “It's never been this long.”
The boy had not been found as of Thursday morning. Sundin said police, family and friends have tried calling Jaiden's cell phone numerous times, but he hasn't answered.
“We've been pinging his phone, (but) the area is too big,” Sundin said. “We've exhausted our avenues of locating him.”
Brown is described as black, about 5 feet tall and weighing about 100 pounds. He may be wearing a black sweatshirt with a “Forever Loyal” logo on the front and a lion on the back.
Brown's family has been in Coraopolis for less than a year. He is known to frequent the Braddock, North Braddock, Swissvale and Wilkinsburg areas, where he is originally from.
Anyone with information about Brown is asked to call Coraopolis police at 412-264-3000 or their local police.
