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.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
