Why not "după băiatul"?

You need to add something after "băiat" to determine it in order to make it definite ("băiatul"), otherwise it remains indefinite:

Gardianul aleargă după băiatul meu. = The guardian is running after my boy.

Gardianul aleargă după băiatul care a evadat. = The guardian is running after the boy who escaped.
