"Shakeem Smith, 15, was last seen leaving the facility at 525 Convent Rd, Syosset on foot Sunday at 3:21 p.m." "It is unknown what he was wearing at the time he left Mercy First." why do they do this?

I've helped Mercy First staff search for kids several times. They tend to head toward the Barry Lane or Sherman Drive neighborhood to elude searchers as they head toward the railroad station. I have a feeling I saw one of these kids on Sunday at the corner of Edward Lane and Sherman Drive.

He left with two of his friends. Why is there no mention of them in the article with their pictures?

The medication is spelled Depakote.
