(Brownsville, TX) – A 15-year-old boy is in Mexico after running away from a migrant shelter in Texas. The boy was being sheltered at a child care facility in Brownsville in South Texas near the border with Mexico when he left Saturday.
After police scoured the area, it was reported that he had crossed the border into Mexico. A man who claims to be the boy’s father is now working to get him back to his native Honduras. Officials at the shelter say they aren’t allowed to restrain kids because it’s not a detention center.
