oh dear! Let's all keep an eye out for Jamar, and help to locate him safe and sound. Concerned, is there a pic you or DebbieC could post, to help?

Soccermom, I'm not good at picking up the pics from press releases. Maybe we can see if Debbiec has more luck. Most of the missing I posted from Toronto/Peel yesterday have a picture attached to the press release.

a comment at the end of the following article raises a good point - if this boy is a habitual runaway, why is he always running away? .... the commentor also suspects local gang activity recruiting boys this age by "making him feel good etc."  BTW his picture is bigger and clearer when you go to the link, but it comes up small after you "save" it, as you can see.

thanks for psoting that Lostlinger -- it helps. My heart goes out to this young person. He's so vulnerable, to all sorts of terrible things, at such a young age. I hope he can find safe support -- now. Later may be too late.

soccer; maybe someone will browse into this (those who know where he is, and feel the need to google for a "heads up" if you know what I mean) and tell him we care.  One never knows what little incident can save a soul.

how nicely said, Lost. Where are all the big brothers/big sisters and other community organizations and individuals to help mentor and support such a young fellow? I'm not casting apersions on his family but clearly more help is needed for this person to feel safe and welcome at home.
