The Lucas County sheriff s office is requesting information on a missing teenager believed to be a runaway.

Though runaway cases generally aren t highly publicized compared to other police reports, this case concerns detectives because the girl is believed to have taken her 8-month-old son, who needs regular medication, Detective Cathy Stooksbury said.

According to the missing-persons report, Tiffany Bean, 16, walked away from a foster home in Swanton at about 8 p.m. Dec. 20 and hasn t returned. Her son, Desonte, has breathing problems, and his mother may be unable to provide proper medication, Detective Stooksbury said.

Anyone with information on the teen s or the infant s whereabouts is asked to call the Crime Stopper program. Callers may remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
