Logan Mott, 15, was apprehended by the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol as he tried to cross into Canada from near Buffalo, New York, the Sheriff's Office tweeted Friday, two days after becoming the subject of a manhunt that started roughly 1,000 miles away in Neptune Beach, Florida. Jacksonville Sheriff's Office director Ron Lendvay said investigators uncovered evidence of foul play and "possible criminal violence" inside the home, and later uncovered the buried remains that appear to be consistent with Kristina French, 53.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office then issued an alert for French, the boy and her vehicle. "Logan is our child and we love him and are standing by him to help in any way".

Mott and French were reported missing late Thursday morning.

Logan Mott, 15, was reported missing after he and his grandmother Kristina French, 53, were supposed to pick up his father and his father's girlfriend from a Jacksonville area airport, CBS News reports. Police say they do believe Mott is alive and in that vehicle. Guns taken from Logan's father's home, and a Dodge Dart associated with the initial missing child alert, are still missing.

Guns had also been reported missing from Mott's family home, but Bowker wouldn't say whether any were recovered during the inspection.

Robinho speaks out after ex-Man City star 'jailed for sexual assault'
Former Manchester City forward Robinho has been sentenced to nine years in prison for sexual assault, according to Sky Italia. Robinho had previously been accused of sexual assault during his City days, but was ultimately cleared of any wrongdoing.

His mother, Carrie Campbell-Mott told First Coast News her son has had some trouble adjusting since moving onto high school. "Mom", Campbell-Mott said in the post.

Earlier Friday, officials said a body that matched the grandmother's description was found in a shallow grave in the teen's backyard.

Police urged residents to call 911 if they spot Mott.

Logan's mother told via the Florida Times-Union she last spoke to her son Sunday, with the mother saying he seemed to her to be in a good mood.

Just as Campbell-Mott could not have imagined French hurting her son, she also could not believe that Logan would harm or intentionally kill his grandmother.
