OAKLAND (BCN) --  Police are asking for the public's help in finding an 11-year-old  boy who ran away from an Oakland group home on Wednesday evening.

      The boy, Jerry Walker, was last seen by staff at the Greater New  Beginnings group home at 1625 Filbert St. at about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday,  police said.

      Investigators are concerned for his well-being because of his  young age, police said. He attends the La Cheim School in Richmond but did  not show up for school today.  

      Jerry is described as 4 feet 9 inches tall and 90 pounds, with  black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt  and blue jeans.

      Anyone who sees Jerry or has any information about his whereabouts  is asked to call the Police Department's Youth and Family Services Division  at (510) 238-3641.
