  • Florida teen arrested at Peace Bridge as person of interest in grandmother's death

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

UPDATE, Friday 4:18 p.m.: The mother of missing teen Logan Mott said a body was found in the backyard of a Neptune Beach home where police have been investigating the disappearance of Logan and his grandmother Kristina French.

Mott was in the care of his grandmother, while his father - a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office corrections officer- was on vacation with his girlfriend, reported the Florida Times Union. They subsequently discovered a gravesite at the Seagate address. "They appear consistent with the description of Kristina French, but there will be no positive identification until the autopsy is completed by the medical examiner", says JSO's Director of Investigations, Ron Lendvay.

#LoganMott #KristinaFrench - We believe we have located the body of Kristina French.

Police said Logan, and the missing Dodge Dart, were spotted Thursday on surveillance video in south central Pennsylvania.

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. Police stopped short of calling him a suspect, but said in a press conference Friday "we need to talk to him about what happened in the house".




He never made it to the Canadian side, Bowker said. Upon inspection, agents learned that he had a warrant out for grand theft auto charges in relation of the case and that he is a person of interest in French's murder.

Lendvay said that because guns were taken from the home, anyone who sees Mott or the vehicle should use extreme caution and call 911.

Eric Mott's guns were missing from a gun safe, Campbell-Mott said.

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.

Logan's father, Eric Mott, is a 17-year veteran of the sheriff's office. Police now think he has packed enough insulin packs to last him several weeks.

Mott's mother Carrie Campbell-Mott released the following statement after learning her son was in custody, CBS affiliate WJAX reports: "We are relieved he is safe and in custody and we just ask for everyone to give us time to sort out what happened".
