UPDATE @4 a.m. 2/9/18:  William Corkum remains missing, according to Xenia police.

UPDATE @ 11:39 p.m. 2/8/18: The search for 15-year-old William Corkum, listed by police as a missing endangered juvenile, is continuing, Xenia police Capt. Alonzo Wilson said. 

The boy's family called police when Corkum took the family's dogs for a walk and did not return. The dogs did return, Wilson said. 

Police learned the teenager was in contact with friends, via social media, and made statements about being depressed. 

"So we're a little concerned for his welfare," the captain said. "At this point, we're not sure why he walked away."
