September 26, 2023 | Ohio
More than 1,000 children have been reported missing around Cleveland this year, including nearly 50 minors who have seemingly disappeared from the same area so far this month.
According to the Ohio Attorney General’s Office’s missing children website, a total of 1,072 children have been reported missing so far in 2023 from the Cleveland-Akron area.
That includes more than 45 children reported missing from the Cleveland-Akron area in September so far.
In August, more than 35 minors were reported missing from the same area.
“Yes, of course, we are worried about that,” Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost told News 5 Cleveland in an interview Monday. “Now, what we know is when we look behind the numbers, some of those represent repeated runaways and local police have talked about that.” (Excerpt from Fox News.)
