BOY, 14, MISSING SINCE WEEKEND FOUND BURIED ON OHIO FARM

UPDATE:  BOY, 14, MISSING SINCE WEEKEND FOUND BURIED ON OHIO FARM

CARROLLTON, Ohio – Authorities say the body of a 14-year-old boy reported missing Sunday has been found in a shallow grave on a northeast Ohio farm.

The Carroll County sheriff, prosecutor and coroner didn’t provide any details at a news conference Friday afternoon about how Jonathon Minard died, or whether there were suspects in his death. Investigators found his body Friday morning at a Washington Township farm, roughly 90 miles southeast of Cleveland.

Jonathon was last seen Saturday at a New Harrisburg farm where he helps milk cows at a farm owned by a friend’s father. Investigators were told Jonathon complained about a toothache and said he’d call his mother at the friend’s house to pick him up.

Sheriff Dale Williams said earlier this week the mother didn’t receive a call.

CARROLLTON, Ohio — The Carroll County Sheriff’s office is still looking for a missing teen who vanished several days ago, and officials now confirm they are treating this as a criminal investigation.

Investigators say 14-year old Jonathan Minard was last seen on April 13. 

Minard is described as 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 145 pounds with blue eyes and brown hair. He was last seen wearing a blue hoodie, brown pants and brown boots. 

Minard was at a farm near New Harrisburg to help with milking Friday and went home after 3 p.m. He returned to the farm after 1:30 p.m. Saturday when he complained of a toothache and said he was calling his mother to go home.

His mom never received that call, and he hasn’t been seen since.

According to the sheriff’s office, a “person of interest” has been questioned in the case. However, no arrests have been made at this time.
