The Highland County Sheriff’s Office and the Greenfield Police Department are searching for a Greenfield teenager who has been missing since last Wednesday, according to Highland County Sheriff Richard Warner.

Jacob McGraw, 14, was last seen at Mitchell’s ball park, Warner said, adding that “he went missing on March 12.” However, according to the Ohio Attorney General’s website, McGraw has been missing since March 10.

The Attorney General’s website describes McGraw as a 5-foot-2, white male with brown hair and brown eyes. In addition, the website states that he was wearing black shorts and a red t-shirt. He was carrying a gray hoodie.

Also according to the Attorney General’s website, “he may be in the Columbus, Ohio area.”

And while Warner said local law enforcement has “gotten some tips on possible locations,” so far, they have not received anything concrete.

Warner said that it does not appear that McGraw was forcibly abducted. “Everything points toward runaway,” he said.

Further, a post that is currently circulating on Facebook encourages people with any possible information to contact law enforcement. The post reads, “His family and friends are extremely worried about him.”

“It’s just important any time a child goes missing or runs away to get that child back in their home where they’re safe,” Warner said.

If anyone has information concerning McGraw’s whereabouts, they can call the sheriff’s office at 937-393-1421, or the Greenfield Police Department at 937-981-7777.
