Riverhead Police are looking for a 17-year-old boy who ran away from Timothy Hill Children’s Ranch on June 1.

Police said Jeffrey Chavez left the ranch without permission on Friday. He went home to his mother’s house in Brentwood, where he was last seen on June 4 after refusing her request to return to the ranch in Riverhead. He is believed to still be in the Brentwood area, police said.
