Police are seeking the public’s help in finding a teenage boy who reportedly ran away from a Costa Mesa group home more than a week ago.

Justin Diciolli, 13, left the home in the 200 block of Joann Street shortly before 2 p.m. Jan. 29 after his cellphone was taken away, police said.

He was last reported seen about two hours later at Costa Mesa High School, police said.

Police said Justin is a “chronic” runaway and has been found in Anaheim in the past. Authorities would not provide further information about him.


Anyone with information about Justin’s whereabouts is asked to call Costa Mesa police Det. David Sevilla at (714) 754-5360.
