New Hartford Police Need Help Finding 14-Year-Old Brooke
Authorities are asking for help from the public locating a teenager who appears to have run away from home.
The New Hartford Police Department says that 14-year-old Brooke Jobson may be in the city of Utica.
Police do not have any other information about her whereabouts.
Brooke, who police say "has a history of running away," is described as being five feet two inches tall and weighing approximately 115 pounds. She has black hair and blue eyes and was last seen wearing black leggings and a long sleeve, black T-shirt.
Brooke had previously been reported missing in March and was located a few days later.
According to the latest statistics from the United States Department of Justice Office of Justice Programs, "conservative estimates indicate that at least 40,000 youth (age 10-17) run away annually in New York State." Estimates on how many are recovered, and how many return home, vary.
Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call the New Hartford Police Department at: (315) 733.6666.
