Absolutely heartbreaking.

Yesterday, we were shocked to learn that Caleb Jacoby, 16-year-old son of Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby, has been missing since Monday:

The Jacobys live in Brookline, Massachusetts, and search efforts are underway throughout the Boston area (MassLive has more information).

We can’t even begin to imagine what Jacoby’s family is going through.

Caleb clearly means the world to his father:

Late last night, Jacoby sent this message to his followers:

We will continue to hope and pray for Caleb’s safe return.
