A teenager returned from Idaho almost a month ago to his home in June
Colton McMinn,15, reportedly lost his home in Rexburg on May 14. He reportedly said he would keep his photo with him and never forget it.
Rexburg police indicated that they were considering McMinn as a fugitive, and described him as “out of reach”. Shortly after he vanished, the police said they believed a person brought him close to his home on May 14th. As per the reports, the teenager did not carry a purse or his mobile phone.
The investigation continued for several days
On June 8, Rexburg’s assistant chief of police, Gary Hagen, told that the police were incessantly searching for the teenager and that Colton’s friends and close knowns had led the police to believe he was in the Idaho Falls area.
Two days later, according to reports MacMaine’s wife, Britney MacMaine, who had explicitly asked for public help in search of her stepson in the lost weeks, posted a Facebook post that he is safe and returning home.
“he is fine and is returning home !! We cannot express enough our gratitude for all the love and support we received from everyone while looking for our son.” Our prayers have been answered, “Britney McMain wrote in a Facebook post.
It is still unidentified where Colton McMinn was during the weeks lost from home
