BELOIT (WKOW) — Beloit police are looking to check the welfare of 18-year-old Jeremiah Young, who hasn’t been heard from since he was walking to Beloit Memorial High School Tuesday morning.
Police say this is unusual for him and he is cognitively delayed.
“There’s nothing that we located in our records management system that would indicate that he’s always missing school or skipping school, or he’s been delinquent at home, not coming home,” Lieutenant Andre Sayles tells 27 News.
“He’s always in a good mood,” Young’s cousin, fellow Beloit Memorial High School student Asia Young tells 27 News. “I’m just worried about him. I just want him to come.”
Young lives with Jeremiah Young’s Beloit family. The missing teen’s mother, Deborah Young tells 27 News her son was looking forward to getting his driver’s license, getting a car, and continuing his part-time job. She says her son is vulnerable as a result of his learning disability. Deborah Young says her son left for school Tuesday without his normal identification.
If anyone has seen him or know his whereabouts, police ask that you call 608-757-2244.
He was last seen in the 1500 block of White Avenue wearing a red zip-up hoodie, black pants, and black shoes with red and white on them.
