    UPDATE: Missing Heritage teen found

    Update, Jan. 14, 2:15 p.m.: Elijah Jackson has been found safe and was taken home.

    Elijah Jackson


    The Leesburg Police Department is seeking the public's help in finding a missing teenage boy.

    Elijah Jackson, 16, was last seen Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. near Harper Park Middle School on Potomac Station Drive NE in Leesburg. He did not get on his school bus, and police say he may have planned to walk to Heritage High School on Evergreen Mills Road SE.

    Jackson is black, around 5'10" tall and weighs around 170 pounds. He was last seen wearing black sweatpants and a gray, hooded sweatshirt and was carrying a red and yellow striped backpack. He may be wearing eyeglasses.

    The Leesburg Police Department is requesting that anyone with information call authorities at 703-771-4599.

    “Elijah Jackson has been found safe and was taken home.”

    I’m glad that Elijah is safe, but this story deserves more than a one-sentence follow-up. Was he abducted? A runaway? Has public safety been jeopardized?

    Too often families turn to the media to help them find their missing kids, and then once the children are found it’s “Please respect our privacy. There’s nothing to see here. Just move along now…”


    Prayers for a safe return. He’s at that age where it could be just about anything. A scary situation that I hope is resolved quickly and safely.
