CLEVELAND — Cleveland police are asking for the public’s help in finding the last of three boys who walked out of their residential treatment facility Monday afternoon and haven’t been seen since.

Jeremiah Baker, 17, along with a 12-year-old and a 13-year-old boy, were all supposed to attend group therapy at the Cleveland Christian Home at 11401 Lorain Ave., but instead they walked out of the building without permission, according to a police report.

The boys were last seen walking east on Denison Avenue near West 73rd Street at about 2:50 p.m., authorities said.

The 12 and 13-year-old boy have since returned. Jeremiah, however, is still missing.

Jeremiah is described as a light-skinned black male, 5 feet 9 inches tall, 163 pounds in weight, with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a red hoodie, blue jeans and red shoes.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the First District Detectives at 216-623-5118 or 216-621-1234.
