Caleb Jacoby (photo above), the 16 year-old son of Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby and his wife Laura, has been missing since around noon on Monday. The Brookline, MA police report that “Jacoby was last seen wearing navy chino pants or jeans, a navy polo shirt, a brown winter jacket with a hood, brown shoes or sneakers and white socks. He frequents public libraries and Young Israel of Brookline on Green Street. He is described as having a thin build and short, light brown hair.”
Efrat Lipschitz, Jacoby’s Hebrew teacher, who is organizing efforts to post fliers, said Jacoby was last seen midday Monday. “We don’t know anything. We don’t have even a clue,” Lipschitz said.
Lipschitz described Jacoby as a quiet boy and a serious one. “He took his studies very seriously. He took life seriously. He wasn’t easygoing,” Lipschitz said.
“He’s a very quiet boy, he’s also a very good one,” Lipschitz said. “People really love him in school because he is a very good person.”
A prayer vigil for Jacoby will be held at the Young Israel of Brookline, a Brookline synagogue, Tuesday evening.
Anyone who sees Jacoby should contact the Brookline police at (617) 730-2222.
