Case of Missing 15-Year-Old Boy Highlights Problem at Brownsville Shelter
BROWNSVILLE – The search for a missing 15-year-old Honduran boy who left a Brownsville shelter has been called off.
The boy’s parents requested the search be called off. His location is still unknown.
This incident highlights a problem at the Casa Padre Shelter, which is part of the Southwest Key Programs' system.
A spokesperson says Casa Padre is not a detention center and therefore cannot stop children from leaving.
KRGV’s Christian Von Preysing spoke with Brownsville authorities who say this isn’t the first report of immigrant children leaving a shelter.
