  • Jacksonville Sheriffs Office. The teen was captured Nov. 24 2017 trying to enter Canada following the discovery of his grandmother in a shallow grave at his Florida home

Logan Tyler Mott was driving a 2015 Dodge Dart - presumably the auto taken from his grandmother - when he was stopped about 7 p.m. Friday on the Peace Bridge, a span at the end of Lake Erie linking the USA and Canada, said Aaron Bowker, the agency's public affairs officer in Buffalo, N.Y. However, police said they are waiting on the autopsy to confirm the body's identity.

Logan and his grandmother, Kristine French, were slated to pick the teen's father up from Jacksonville International Airport on Wednesday but never arrived.

Armed and risky, the 15-year-old had stolen a vehicle and was being sought as a "person of interest" in respect of the murder of his grandmother, a woman of 53-year-old whose body was found earlier this week in the city of Neptune Beach, in the suburbs of Jacksonville.

Authorities believe Logan Mott, 15, is or was in south central Pennsylvania, according to WPXI's sister station Action News Jax.

He said Mott was turned over to Buffalo police, who were coordinating with police in Jacksonville on the teen's return.

Logan's father, Eric Mott, is a 17-year veteran of the sheriff's office.


Logan Mott's mother, Carrie Campbell-Mott, told First Coast News that the boy has had some has had trouble adjusting in recent months after transferring away from his friends at Fletcher Middle School and entering Sandalwood High School.

In a statement to "Good Morning America" she said she was "relieved" to have her son safe and requested time for authorities to look into the death of French.

Eric French is a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office corrections officer.

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". If spotted, the sheriff's office urges the public to call 911. The home was found ransacked with the door open and guns missing from the safe when Mott's father and girlfriend returned, opting to take an Uber ride back home when his son failed to show up. 'No matter what, Logan is our child and we love him...

She said a Jacksonville detective will fly to meet Logan on Saturday.

"My gut tells me that he just ran".
