Authorities are looking for a transgender teen missing from Highland Heights since Sunday.

According to police, 17-year-old Jeremy Negrelli may have run away from his home last weekend with his pet cat, laptop, cell phone and camera. The teen was born Kayla Star Negrelli but legally changed his name to Jeremy, according to his mother.

Negrelli purchased hair dye before he went missing and may have dyed his hair black, his mother said in a Facebook post.

The Cleveland Division of the FBI confirmed it is working with local law enforcement to locate the teen.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Highland Heights detective bureau at 440-442-1221
