COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  On Thursday, the mother of a sixteen-year-old student at Jordan Vocational High School reported her son missing to the Columbus Police Department. She says he ran away yesterday and tells News Leader 9 he may be with a female teacher who once taught him at Jordan.

And the concerned mother, who does not want to be identified, says she believes the teacher and her son have been intimate.
