Missing Jewish Brookline, Massachusetts teen Caleb Jacoby may have been spotted in Providence, Rhode Island on the evening of January 7, according to preliminary reports.
ABC6 in Providence reported Wednesday afternoon that there have been “several reports” placing the teen in Providence on Tuesday evening. No further details were reported.
Police believe Caleb, an 11th-grader at the Maimonides School in suburban Boston, may be a runaway.
