NEWBURYPORT (WGME) — Police in Massachusetts are searching for a teen mom and her “missing and endangered” son, according to WBZ.
Police told WBZ 15-year-old Shantel Van Voorhis left DARE Family services in Newburyport with her four-month-old son Jacob Van Voorhis around 2:25 a.m. on Monday.
WBZ reports there have been two possible sightings of them since, one in Swampscott on a train to Springfield and another at a gas station in Springfield.
Shantel may be with Jonathan Heredia and has ties to Holyoke and Springfield, according to WBZ.
Heredia may be driving a 1998 Honda CRV with Mass. registration 4ZN892.
The SUV was seen in Newburyport on Monday, according to WBZ.
Police told WBZ at this point, no crime had been committed.
Massachusetts State Police called Jacob a “missing and endangered child” because “Shantel left without Jacob’s antibiotic for an ear infection, and he is on special soy formula. It is unknown if the child is in a baby seat and she left his diaper bag behind,” according to WBZ.
Anyone with information is asked to call Newburyport Police at (978) 462-4411 or 911.
