Previous story: Jayden Nicole Thomas, 13, and Braxton Michael Edward Wood, 14, from Michigan have been missing since August 26.
The two families have joined together to search for the teens that are thought to have run off together. Thomas lives in Clare and Wood lives in Mount Pleasant which are about 15 minutes away from each other
Jayden and Braxton were going to different high schools this year. Before were inseparable to the point that both sets of parents were uncomfortable with their relationship. They had become so close that they no longer were interacting with their friends anymore.
Authorities believe the two are traveling in a black 2005 Ford Explorer with Michigan plates BCQ3820.
At first they thought that the teens were heading to a friend of Braxton’s in Florida but there has been no sightings of the vehicle, and the parents don’t believe they have enough money for gas to travel very far.
There are a lot of places to hunt in Michigan and I am willing to bet they have held up in a hunting cabin somewhere.
If you see the teens or their vehicle, please call the Isabella County Sheriff’s Department at 989-772-5911.
