PLEASE HELP VSO FIND MISSING TEEN, 17
Volusia sheriff’s deputies want everyone to be on the lookout for a teenage runaway who has made suicidal statements and may be in hanging out in downtown DeLand.
Johnathan Riggs, 17 (DOB 2/11/2003), a resident of the Florida United Methodist Children’s Home in Enterprise, jumped a fence there Thursday morning and left the campus. The teen was last seen wearing a green shirt, black pants and short hair. He is white, weighs 140-150 pounds and is 5’10” to 6 feet tall.
Johnathan is likely in the company of a female juvenile friend who likes to frequent downtown DeLand. She recently shaved the hair on the sides of her head and her hair is hot pink.
