UPDATE: 7/18/14 – Authorities said Ryan and Braiden were found safe after a two-day search.
Ryan Stow and his 9-year-old son Braiden Stow was last seen Tuesday morning at 1080 Oakdale Drive in Smyrna.
Police believe that Braiden is with his dad and they may even be at a campsite, because they did plan to go camping before Ryan began calling the police to threaten suicide.
Police went to the Oakdale Drive address where Ryan lives after he called the police 35 times. They found a note that read that Ryan was threatening to commit suicide-by-cop. Ryan and Braiden were gone by the time police got there.
Ryan Stow is described as a white male, 6-feet-1-inch tall, weighing 160 pounds with green eyes and several tattoos. Braiden Stow is described as being 4’8″, weighing 60 to 65 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes. Braiden was last seen wearing shorts, a t-shirt and blue-and-yellow Reebok slippers.
