Massachusetts State Police said in a statement that Marlena may be in need of medical help.

Police in Brookline are continuing their search for Caleb Jacoby, a Brookline teenager who went missing on Monday. Multiple reports on Wednesday stated that Caleb may have been spotted around Providence. A local ABC affiliate reported that there were several sightings of Caleb on Tuesday, but no further information was provided.

Jacoby is described has 5 feet 11 inches tall, 140 pounds, with light brown hair and a light complexion. He was last seen wearing a navy polo shirt, navy chinos or jeans, a brown winter jacket with a hood and brown shoes with white socks.

Caleb’s father, Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby, took to Twitter to declare his appreciation for all that is being done in the search for his son.

“We are so deeply, deeply grateful for everything being done to reunite us with our beloved son Caleb,” he wrote on Wednesday.

Anyone with information on Caleb is urged to contact Brookline police at 617-730-2222. Those with information on Marlena should call Topsfield police at 978-887-6533.
