ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Orange County Sheriff's deputies are asking for the public's help in finding the missing son of a woman who was fatally shot in August.
    
The Orlando Sentinel (http://thesent.nl/TPfpxv ) reports 14-year-old Ricardo Chang has been missing since Monday. He was last seen about 7:30 p.m. at the Central Florida Behavioral Center in Orlando.
    
The teen's mother, Jorgete Acarie, was found dead in her bed last August in southwest Orange County. No arrests have been made in that case.
    
Police say the boy's father released a statement Tuesday calling for his safe return.
