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.

Two days after he left his Brookline, Massachusetts home, 16-year-old Jewish day school student Jacoby is still officially missing. Support for the search for Jacoby, the son of Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby, has poured in from the Boston area Jewish community and beyond since he disappeared some time around 12:30 p.m. on January 6.
