    CHICAGO (CBS 2) Friends and family are desperate to find 13-year-old Alberto Torres.

    He’s been missing since early Tuesday. The boy was reported missing after he didn’t show up for school Tuesday.

    Every morning, Alberto Torres would help his classmates at Philo Carpenter School cross the intersection of Elizabeth and Huron on the city’s West Side.

    This morning, before school, Alberto's mother brought his younger brother to the corner to see if there was any sign of the missing eighth grader.

    They waited and waited. He never came.

    “We’re devastated,” she said. “We don’t’ know what to do.”
