Missing Teens Found Safe, Run Away Again

Jacob Mitchell of Lawrenceville and his girlfriend Samantha Aldana were found in New York State.


A Lawrenceville mother received good news that her son was safe, only to later learn he would run away again.

Katricia Mitchell created a Facebook page, Finding Jacob, to help locate her 15 year old son, Jacob Terry Mitchell. On the page, Mitchell says her son and his 17 year old girlfriend, Samantha Aldana, were with the girl's family in New York. Mitchell told 11Alive that the teens were at Samantha Aldana's aunt and uncle's home in Long Beach N.Y. 

Just hours later, Katricia Mitchell posted that the two were on the run again. "Sam's aunt gave them keys, after having taken the keys away and ensuring their safety, to get belongings out of car and they took off," said the concerned mother on Facebook.

The two teens . Samantha Aldana's mother, Norma Aldana, told 11Alive after she went to sleep Friday, her daughter took the gold 1996 Toyota Corolla that belongs to Norma and her husband. The car has a Georgia tag number BVE-6905.

Katricia Mitchell is especially worried because her son has been diagnosed with depression and is without his medicine. The mother says her son is on a "downward spiral" without his prescription. 

"Jacob cares about Sam and does not want her on the run alone," said Katricia Mitchell on Facebook. "He also does not like taking his medication because he does not like the effects of the medication."
