    These have stood out to me as I am also from Nassau County. I use WS on my phone and a technology illiterate but I wish we had a pin Map for these kids. Very strange. When I get up tomorrow I am going to see if i cam find what school they all go to. And Hempstead has a pop of approx 60,000. It's part of a larger area collectively called Town if Hempstead to which I pay taxes even though I live in Wantagh NY. TOH pop 800,000. But I do believe these children come from the aforementioned village of Hempstead.

    So here are two other kids the same age missing from Hempstead. The girl who was reported missing, KS, has been actively posting on facebook so I didn't include her in this post.

    I hope it's not a suicide epidemic. A neighboring town lost several kids that way and now they say it's happening all over. (http://onpoint.wbur.org/2015/05/04/t...akota-pressure)

    Praying they all come home soon.

    Hmmm I hope all of these kids are safe. It's scary to have so many missing kids from the same area.

    With all due respect, I feel the need to speak up. This young man is about the age my son was when I watched him spiral out of control with what has now been diagnosed as bi-polar disorder (amidst other previous diagnoses). He ran no less than seven times in about a three week time span. While I hope this young man is not in the midst of the same type of episode, it's clear something is going on. I feel for him and his family. I hope he is found soon and that he and his family have resources they can lean on to help them through this difficult time. I will be keeping them in my thoughts.

    **To clarify a bit, my son had a rough start to life and has other previously diagnosed difficulties as he came into foster care in my home at the tender age of 4. A combination of factors went into his running pattern but to watch a loved one spiral so far out of control that they feel the need to continually run is heartbreaking and hard no matter the reason behind it. I have nothing but support and prayers to offer this family even while not knowing their specific circumstances.

    To answer the previous poster's question about services, yes, that can happen but it very much depends on the state and the area within a state even as I have discovered. In my state, it's a felony for a child younger than 17 to run so we had juvenile officers involved in addition to law enforcement and of course, I had already contacted family services myself (given our adoption status). There are other stories on this board that play out differently than ours but still similar in some ways. Mental illness education still has a long way to go in our country, imho.

    Milton, please reach out and find your way home safely.

    If you look at "similar threads" below, you will see that there are at least a half a dozen 14 and 15 years olds missing from the town of Hempstead or within 5 or 10 miles of Hempstead.
