Hudson PD continues search for missing teen
Emily Masters is reporting for the Times Union Hudson police continue their search for a 15-year-old Hispanic boy who has now been missing for two weeks. Keener Mendez-Esteban was last seen leaving Columbia Memorial Hospital on March 5 with two employees of the Berkshire Farm Center. Mendez-Esteban was being transferred to the residential facility following a brief hospital stay, said Hudson police Sgt. Shane Bower. Mendez-Esteban was inside a van with the Berkshire employees when they paused at a stop sign, the teenager leapt out of the car and ran off, Bower said. "We don't have a whole lot of information on where he would go or where he is," Bower said. Mendez-Esteban is the second teenager to go missing while in the care of Berkshire Farms this month. JhaiQuan Salisbury, 15, ran away during a home visit in Schenectady on March 7 and is still missing. Mendez-Esteban is 5-foot-6-inches tall with black hair and brown eyes, weighing about 140 pounds. He has connections to Albany, Saratoga and New York City, and may need medical attention. Anyone with information is asked to call the Hudson Police Department at (518) 828-3388.
