A 15-year-old boy is missing from his rural Norwalk home. And Huron County sheriff's deputies are attempting to locate him.
The boy's 38-year-old stepfather called the sheriff's office at 6:10 p.m. Monday and requested deputies check on his stepson's well-being. Capt. Ted Patrick said the man, who lives in Florida, must have been advised his son wasn't there because he apparently "called to see if he returned home yet."
At 9:20 p.m., the boy's grandfather called to report the boy hadn't returned home. Patrick said the boy lives with his grandfather in the 1200 block of Greenwich Milan Townline Road.
A deputy's report indicates the boy is on probation through Sandusky County.
During the investigation, Sandusky County authorities notified the sheriff's office that the boy is wanted on a probation violation and delinquency warrant.
"This stems from the original charges of obstructing official business and criminal mischief," Patrick said.
The white boy has brown eyes and hair, is 5-feet-8-inches tall and weighs about 125 pounds.
"We have deputies assigned to find out where he is," Patrick said.
Anyone with information about the boy's whereabouts is encouraged to call the Huron County Sheriff's Office at (419) 663-2828.
