    an after school program where?….kind of an important piece of the story that, like the boy, is missing

    • Gabby

      The after school program is called tutoring and it is inside the school. Kids go there to do there homework and then their parents pick them up at 4:00. (school gets off at 3:05) There are teachers at tutoring at all times with the kids

    If this is all the information that was given and it were my son missing… I’d be furious! Hey, Channel 13, why was the following critically important description from the sacpd.org News Release omitted? “The missing person is identified as 12-year-old Jean Pierre Melikian, 4’11, 108 lbs, short brown hair, brown eyes, last seen wearing a blue sweatshirt with “St. Mary” written on it, and tan pants.”

      There was tremendous support and help from the St. Mary community. May cars were parked inside the school parking lot (not visible from the street), but the majority were out looking for Jean Pierre.
