Local News

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Police in Youngstown are looking for a missing teen who left a residential facility on the city’s east side.

Police say Devorah McFadden, 16, has been missing since Monday and has had no contact with her caseworker or mother.

Her mother, Jakeema Scott, came to the area from Columbus to look for her missing daughter.

Friday, she hung missing person posters in Liberty, Youngstown and Campbell.

Scott says McFadden has a number of mental and behavioral disorders. She says she’s worried about her daughter and just wants her to come home.

“I’ve opened bathroom doors, looked under shelters. I’ve looked in trash cans, you know, sad to say, but you know,” she said.

McFadden, who is 5’7″ and 145 pounds, was last seen wearing black leggings, white jean shorts, a jean jacket and a long black wig.

Anyone with information on McFadden’s location is asked to call the Youngstown Police Department at 330-742-8929 or 742-8950.
