William David Hall, the Rosedale teen-ager who failed to return home Saturday night when he left to buy a newspaper at a Pulaski Highway diner, today remains the subject of a metropolitan-area police search, Baltimore County police said.

jTC Police said only one possible sighting has been made of Hall, 16, of the 1200 block of Hilldale Ave. A caller told police he saw a young man resembling Hall get into a van in the Dundalk area Sunday. It was not known if the youth was entering the van on his own or was being forced, police said.

Police said Hall, who has a slight learning disability and attends a special education school in Allentown, Pa., is a trusting person who makes friends easily, but could be victimized.

Shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday, Hall left home on foot to buy a Sunday Sun at the Double-T Inn diner in the 8300 block of Pulaski Highway, a few blocks away. His parents told police their son had about $12 on him.

When he failed to return, his parents and friends went looking for him. Later, the county police were notified and joined the search.

Hall is white, stands 5 feet, 9 inches tall, weighs 135 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes. When last seen, he was wearing dark gray Bugle Boy-brand jeans, a black jacket with red patterns on the sleeves and tennis shoes.

Police urged that anyone knowing of Hall's whereabouts call the White Marsh station at 887-5000.
