14-year-old missing; may have seen foul play; police say rumors

Jabez Spann, 14,  has been missing from Sarasota, Florida since Sept. 4, 2017.   Spann was last seen on Labor Day, Sept. 4, near the 1500 block of 23rd Street at a Labor Day barbecue with his family. His grandmother said later she saw him cross the street and thought he was going to a friend’s, but when he didn’t return on Sept. 5, she called the police and reported him missing.

There has been speculation in the Newtown community that Jabez may have witnessed a violent crime.  Chief Dipino told Fox 13 that she’s heard that rumor too but detectives have not received any credible tips that would validate it.

Please take a minute to watch Jabez’ family talk about him.  It is very powerful!

Spann is 5-foot-9, 120 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a turquoise shirt.


Anyone who has information is asked to contact Detective Megan Buck at 941-954-7067.
