The Tishomingo Sheriff’s Office is asking the public’s help in locating a 14-year-old boy, that goes by the name of Jacob Monroe of 618 CR 992 Iuka.
Jacob’s mother informed the Sheriff’s Office, that her son was born with a condition called “Fetal Alcohol Syndrome” and it has caused his mind to not fully develop. The mother also reported her son went missing last night at around 10 pm. Jacob is believed to have left on his own but did not have any shoes. A search of the immediate area along with other family members residences turned up nothing.
Jacob is described as 5’4” approximately 100 lbs., white male that is 14 years old. He has braces with pink bands on them. Jacob was last seen wearing a yellow T-shirt and blue jeans. Jacob and his family live in the Midway Community around what is locally known as Rock Crusher Road.
Currently a search team is in the area made up of first responders which includes medical personnel as well as law enforcement. K9 is coming to assist in the search as well.
