Kyle Christopher Hodge, 16, has been located and is safe.
Alexander Wayne Logan, 17, remains missing. Deputies are continuing to search for him.
Anyone with information on Alexander's whereabouts is asked to call the Collier County Sheriff's Office at 239.252.9300.
The father of a missing Golden Gate Estates teen who disappeared 10 days ago said Wednesday night he thinks his son is safe and the family hopes to reunite soon.
Kyle Christopher Hodge, 16, and Alexandar Wayne Logan, 17, both of Golden Gate Estates, were reported missing by the Collier County Sheriff’s Office Wednesday.
Hodge was last seen late at night on May 19 while Logan disappeared after May 15, according to reports. Deputies suspect that the two teens may be together.
“We’re in the process of following up some new leads that we got today,” Jason Hodge, Kyle’s father, said. “(But) we believe he is safe.”
Jason Hodge declined further comment.
Kyle Hodge is described in Sheriff’s Office reports as being about 6 feet tall and 200 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. Logan, who is also about 6 feet tall, weighs 160 pounds, with blond hair and hazel eyes.
Neither teen has ran away from home before, and it is odd for them to not be in touch with family members for multiple days, reports said.
Logan was involved in a 2010 vehicle accident that left him in a coma. He was in another serious vehicle accident in March. Due to his medical condition, family members are concerned that Logan may not be “thinking clearly and may need medical attention.”
The Collier County Sheriff’s Office is requesting that anyone with information on the whereabouts of Kyle Christopher Hodge and Alexandar Wayne Logan call (239) 252-9300.
