Please help us spread the word about Jabez Spann out of Sarasota, Florida by sharing this report.
SARASOTA — The Sarasota Police Department is asking for the local public’s assistance in locating missing 14 year old Jabez Spann out of the Sarasota, Florida area.
Jabez was last seen September 4, 2017.
When last seen, Jabez was wearing a turquoise shirt. Jabez was last seen at a Labor Day barbecue with his family and was reported missing by his grandmother the following day. A Facebook post from Our Missing Hearts said, “He seemed like he wasn’t enjoying himself or something was bothering him when he left for home … around 5:30 that evening. He hasn’t been seen or heard from since.” That was in the 1500 block of 23rd Street in Sarasota.
After pinging his cellphone, police searched a nearby wooded area where the last known location of his phone is said to have been, but despite using K-9’s and a helicopter, came up empty.
Sarasota Police Chief Bernadette DiPino said the case has left her department frustrated. DiPino said there are areas her officers want to search, but they are private property and without probable cause, officers cannot conduct those searches without consent.
Jabez is described as:
• GENDER: Male.
• ETHNICITY: Black.
• HAIR: Black.
• EYES: Brown.
• HEIGHT: 5 feet 9 inches.
• WEIGHT: 120 pounds.
