Mansfield police asking for your help finding a couple of missing persons.

They are 44 year old Timothy Lee Whitt, and his six year old nephew, Zane Clay. Clay's mother told police the two left on a scheduled outing yesterday, but never returned home.

See details below from Mansfield police.


The Mansfield Division of Police is currently attempting to locate Timothy Lee Whitt (W/M/44) and his 6 year old nephew, Zane Clay, who left with Mr. Whitt yesterday morning. Mr. Whitt picked up his nephew, Zane (W/M/6) onWednesday 01/29/2020 to spend time with him. Both were last seen leaving 117 Pleasant Avenue at approximately 9AM that morning.

Zane's mother became concerned when they had not returned to her home, later that evening, as expected. Mr. Whitt has picked his nephew up from the residence many times in the past. However, Zane’s mother became concerned as Mr. Whitt has always had Zane home on time. She has no way to contact Mr. Whitt (who is transient) and has not heard anything from them since they left which has alarmed her. She contacted Mansfield Police at approximately 8:32PM that evening to report both of them missing.

Timothy Whitt: 44 YOA, W/M 5’6” and 180lbs. with Brown Hair and Blue
Eyes. Last seen wearing a Tan Carhartt Jacket with Blue Jeans
Zane Clay: 6 YOA, W/M 3’5” tall and 48lbs. with Reddish Hair and Blue
Eyes. Last seen wearing a Black and grey coat (same one in left photo) and a
Red T-shirt with Mario on it as well as Black Sweat Pants and Black and
Blue Snow Boots.

Delivery Driver Turns Tables On Robbers

Written by

Akron Police are investigating a robbery and attempted robbery they say are connected. 

Both incidents happened in the same area along Fourth Avenue Monday and both involved pizza delivery drivers. 

According to the APD report, a Domino's Pizza delivery driver flagged down an officer at about noon Monday in the 1100 block of 4th Avenue. The victim told police that he drove up to a vacant home and tried to call the number on the order ticket. While making that call, the victim says he was approached by two men, one of whom pulled a gun demanding his money and the food. 

That driver described the suspects as two black males between 16 and 18-years-old. 

The second incident was an attempted robbery at the same location around 7 p.m., but this time a driver for Papa John's pulled out his own gun when he was approached by three black males who came from behind the vacant home.

Police say no shots were fired and that the suspects, who the victim says were between 15 and 18-years-old, took off running. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Akron Police.
