They informed the public that the boy has run away a few times before. His stepmother was also present the day he disappeared. 

Kirchner-Jiron stands at 6'2" and weighs 200 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes. 


He was wearing khaki pants along with an olive green shirt yesterday. He might also have on burgundy shorts and a blue hoodie. 

The Temple Police ask that anyone with information contact them immediately or call 911 and make a report.

On the same day, a 12-year-old who had been missing was found safe in Texas. 


Marisol Arroyo went missing and had an Amber Alert put out for her. According to the Live Oak County Sheriff's Office, they found her in Laredo. 

The circumstances surrounding her return are not known. Police are searching for Rigoberto Cruz Santos in connection with her disappearance. 


Another teenage girl was recently found safe after three months of searching. Jayme Closs was found walking on a street looking dirty and bedraggled. 

A woman recognized her and took her to a neighbor. The pair then called the police. The girl was examined and returned to her family.


Closs was allegedly abducted by Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, in October 2018. He killed her parents to get to the young girl. 

Closs, 13, escaped from the remote home she was kept in last Thursday. She left when Patterson went out. She later described the attacker's vehicle. 

The Douglas County Wisconsin Sheriff's Department later found the vehicle and arrested Patterson. Closs is staying with her aunts and is in good condition.
