MIDDELTOWN, Ohio -- Police need help identifying a critically injured teen who was dropped off at Atrium Medical Center Sunday morning.

Middletown police say the 14- to 16-year-old "John Doe" was dropped off at the medical facility's emergency room at about 10:30 a.m. He is unconscious and in critical condition at Miami Valley Hospital, police say.

The teen is described as a black male who has "self" tattooed on his right forearm and "made" tattooed on his left forearm.

Police say he was dropped off by two males who were in a Dodge truck. The truck had a no tailgate and a bed liner, and has fading paint on top, according to Middletown police.

Anyone with information on the unidentified person or the truck is asked to call the Middletown Police Department at 513-425-7700.
