Police need help identifying a boy who was dropped off at Atrium Medical Center on Sunday morning.

The boy was dropped off by two men who drove a black pickup truck with faded paint on the top and no tailgate Sunday morning. The boy was then transferred to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, where police said he was listed in critical condition Sunday.

The boy is described as a black juvenile between 14 and 16 years old. He has two tattoos, one of “Self” on his right forearm and one of “Made” on his left forearm. Police did not release information on the boy’s injuries, and hospital officials said that because the victim is a juvenile they will not provide any information.

The pair who left the boy are both described as white men. The first man is described as bald with a large build last wearing a teal T-shirt. The second man was of a thinner build with facial hair. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black hat.

The men’s vehicle is a black Dodge truck, possibly a Dakota, with a bed liner and possibly a temporary registration tag, according to police.

Anyone with information regarding the unidentified teenager, the two men or the truck are urged to contact Middletown police Detective Ken Rogers at 513-425-7700.
