    While there have been reports of Shayden traveling to California, police said it is strongly believed he is still in the area. He may be in the company of an adult white male.

    Police said anyone who sees Shayden should not approach him, but instead should call 911 and notify police immediately. Anyone who has information regarding Shayden, please contact the Garrett Police Department at 357-5151.

    BBM. I never know what that implies when it says that. Is he dangerous? Mentally unstable? Likely to run if approached? :confused: :(

    Yeah, comments under the Facebook posts don't provide much more info. On Shaydens FB page he states he wants to go in the Navy. I think young boys will generally stay out of big trouble if their goal is military service. At least the ones I’ve known have. That’s why this situation does not seem to be a typical runaway to me. Somethings wrong when an adult male takes off with a younger boy.

    6'1 and 195 lbs. is quite tall/big for a 14 year old....he also looks to be a bit older in the posted photos. I'm wondering if the adult male he is believed to be with is perhaps a young adult friend of his? It's not uncommon for kids who look older to hang with older crowds.

    Perhaps this particular friend is not a good influence or has been in trouble with the law in the past and that is the reason for believing Shayden is in extreme danger? Looks older, possibly even SEEMS to be mature for his age hence possibly much older peers, but 14 is still just 14, barely a teenager and easily influenced by "friends"

    Just throwing out thoughts/possible theory. Neither option would be good, but am hoping he's with older friends making bad decisions than the alternative thought, which is that the adult male is a much older adult and has him for nefarious reasons.

    No mention of it being his dad or another relative, so that's the only other place my mind goes

    When i was 14 I was hanging out with 17-19 year olds... looking back it sounds less than ideal but at the time it was an ego boost and made me feel smart and mature, and I wasn’t being used. Hopefully it’s a similar situation.. maybe he and his friend did something illegal and took off before they got caught hence the warning to call 911 instead of confrontation.. One can hope it’s something more simple and not as ill-intentioned as our minds can go to very dark places with some of these...:confused:

    Great news! Quoting from the above link:

    "DEKALB COUNTY, Ind. (WPTA21) — We’re getting new details from police about how a missing 14-year-old boy from Garrett was found safe in Tennessee.

    Police say officers in Hamilton County, Tenn. arrested 36-year-old Larry Taylor last night on a charge of public intoxication. When officers called the DeKalb County Prosecutor to ask about Taylor’s criminal history, they realized there was a Silver Alert for the teen who officers found with Taylor – Shayden Howard.

    Taylor now faces a preliminary charge of kidnapping."

    SH looks really happy too! I wonder why he was taken to the hospital, though. I hope he wasn't harmed by the *** who kidnapped him. :mad:

    MOO.

    It’s probably standard procedure. I’m glad they did though because it means he had a safe place to speak freely to the people who could help him. Evidence was collected I’m sure. It does say more charges are pending which makes me wonder if the perp was trying to traffic him or force him to sell drugs.

    The Chattanooga police officer who helped find a kidnapped teenager from Indiana says he did not know the teen was reported missing.

    Indiana State Police issued a Silver Alert for 14-year-old Shayden Howard on May 16. That alert mentioned Howard could be with an adult white man, and that he was believed to be in extreme danger.

    Officer Jason Clemons says he found Howard at a park intoxicated with 37-year-old Larry Taylor and 51-year-old Charles Pope.

    More at CPD officer says it was a miracle a kidnapped teen from Indiana was found
