11-year-old Gretna boy hails cab to Superdome, disappears


Jefferson Parish sheriff's investigators are looking into the Wednesday morning disappearance of an 11-year-old boy.

Deputies said John Elrod was last seen leaving his home in the 300 block of Westmeade Drive in unincorporated Gretna around 6:30 a.m.

Investigators learned that he had called a cab to take him to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The taxi driver told investigators that Elrod asked to be dropped off near the area of Champions Square.

While investigators do not suspect foul play, they are concerned because of his age and the fact that he has never run away or been reported missing.    

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of John Elrod is asked to contact the JPSO Missing Persons Bureau at 504-364-5300 or Crimestoppers at 822-1111.
