Caleb Jacoby, the 16 year old Boston area teenager who has been missing since Monday afternoon, was found Thursday evening in New York City. He is safe and his parents eagerly look forward to being reunited with him.

Additional details will be provided as they become available, commensurate with the needs of the Jacoby family to heal.

The Jewish Press is thrilled that this nightmare has ended for the Jacoby family, everyone who knows them, and everyone who cares about them.

The Lord will keep you from all harm
He will guard your soul
The Lord will watch over your coming and going
Both now and forevermore

Psalm 121

Micah Jacoby, Caleb’s younger brother, was reciting Psalm 121 twice a day, praying for his brother’s safe return.

  1. Micah Jacoby wasn't the only one saying Tehillim. It's funny, Psalms can seem a little stilted and distant until you really need them.

  2. Miriam Goodman says:

    Baruch Hashem!

  3. Good to hear! Lucky he didn’t freeze in NYC!!

  4. Joyce Myers says:

    Glad he is ok..but not a nice thing to do…he needs to grow up

  5. The link gaves “page not found”, but anyway, the title of the news is great news! Peace to the family!

  6. Glad it was just a teenage “right of passage”.

  7. BH. So happy to hear this great news.

  8. Myriam Obadia says:

    an added reason for celebration this Shabbat.

  9. Ephraim Shalom says:

    BH – very glad that he is safe and sound!
    And to Joyce Myers: Since the details haven’t been released to the public and are no one’s business except the family’s, maybe you shouldn’t publish your own assumptions that cast the boy in a negative light?

  10. Lana Merle says:

    Wonderful !!

  11. Barry Jones says:

    I don't imagine J Myers is the only adult to have those sentiments.
    The boy is either showing a little too much selfishness, or even immaturity.
    Is a little consideration too much to ask. Cmon
    I s'ppose he could have been held captive by drug crazed hoodlums without access to a phone. I suppose that could've happened too? Maybe?

  12. Praise GOD. Micah Jacoby used the ONLY power that will over come ANYTHING. And that is GOD'S WORD. Agreed Myriam Obadia!!!!

  13. To put his parents and brother through this is selfish and inconsiderate, but how many children haven't worried the daylights out of their parents? Teenage boys do dumb things, and some don't survive. This is one of those rare moments in which one of the lost is returned to his family though, and we'll celebrate that while letting his parents deal with his actions.

  14. Alice Lemos says:

    Thank goodness!

  15. Eva Feld says:

    Baruch hashem. Have a peaceful and joyful Shabbat.

  16. Amen, mentioned this young man in my prayers.

  17. Johana Nadler says:

    Baruch Hashem

  18. Douglas Kent says:

    Baruch Hashem!!!

  19. B'H, he's home at last. I know it's human nature to speculate and wonder how this could happen, because we want our world to be safe and "knowable". Let's try to put a lid on our rampant curiosity, and give the family time to heal and recover. Playing armchair detective does no one any good, and speculating can only cause the family more trauma. If they decide to share details, that is their decision – and if they don't, then we have to respect their privacy.

  20. Sarah Lederstein says:

    Thank God he is safe. I shared and shared his picture on every group I belonged to, as time is of the essence in missing kid's cases, and am grateful this had a good ending.

  21. Meyer Falik says:

    B"H Great news. He probably does not realize how many people were praying for his safe return. Let his parents and family deal with the whys.

  22. Jay Mostel says:

    Since it was so publicized, the public should know what happened to him

  23. Meyer Falik says:

    I Thought I answered… I do not agree. There are some things that should be left private. The public does NOTY have the right to know everything. We should just be happy it turned out well.
