Peabody Family Searching for Missing 12-Year-Old

Missing 12-year-old reportedly last seen leaving school in Methuen.

Police are searching for 12-year-old Joseph Christopulos, Jr., who was reportedly last seen leaving a school in Methuen Friday afternoon. 

Christopulos' father and stepmother, who live in Peabody, said their son was supposed to be transitioning to live with them. They said the last time they spoke with him was Thursday. 

"We had talked to him Thursday, and come Friday, he never came home from school," his step-mother Tabitha said. "No one has seen or heard from him."

Methuen Police Sergeant Donald Levine told Peabody Patch at this time the department is not releasing any information, as the situation remains under investigation. 

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Methuen Police Department at (978) 983-8698.
