UPDATE, Friday, 5:50 p.m.: The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office released a new flier with missing 15-year-old Logan Mott's image, calling him "armed and unsafe". Then, at about 11:10 p.m. tonight, we received confirmation that the fugitive teen was discovered in possession of his grandmother's vehicle as he tried to enter Canada from the Buffalo, New York area.

At a Friday press conference, police did not describe Logan Mott as a suspect, instead saying: "We need to talk to him about what happened in the house", a police representative said.

Logan Mott, 15, and Kristina French, 53, were reported missing earlier this week from Neptune Beach after the boy failed to show up to school and French missed work, according to the Miami Herald.

'We are relieved that he is safe and in custody and we just ask for everyone to give us time to sort out what happened, ' the teen's mother, Carrie Campbell-Mott said in a statement to Action News Jax. "No matter what, Logan is our child and we love him and are standing by him to help in any way".

Police are in the process of obtaining an arrest warrant for Mott on auto theft charges and are interviewing him to find out what happened in the home.

Just as Campbell-Mott could not have imagined French hurting her son, she also could not believe that Logan would harm or intentionally kill his grandmother. The couple later took an Uber back to their Neptune Beach home on Seagate Avenue, where they found it pillaged with several guns missing from the safe.

WJXT in Jacksonville first reported both Mott and French went missing on Wednesday after failing to pick up Mott's father at the Jacksonville International Airport. They also said firearms had been stolen from the home. Her weapons were gone, as was her Dodge Dart.

A Florida teenager wanted in connection with the death of his grandmother was detained by border officials while attempting to enter into Canada, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office announced Friday evening.

"A big thank you to all for sharing and allowing us to quickly stop Logan Mott".

Eric Motts updated Facebook cover photo, posted Thursday and still up, pictures his son and his mother, French, with the word "Missing" in red letters.
