UPDATE (3/15/19): The Madison County Sheriff’s Office released the following statement on Paxton Glenn’s disappearance –
The Madison Count Sheriff’s Office acknowledges that Paxton Marie Glenn’s family has been reunited with her.
We would like to thank the following for their assistance and cooperation during the investigation: Sparkman 9th Grade Academy, Madison County School System, Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Local Law Enforcement Agencies, School Resource Officers, Investigators and those interviewed during the investigation.
Because the criteria set by the Department of Justice and managed by the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency did not meet that of an Amber Alert, an Emergency Missing Child Alert was posted by ALEA and distributed to media outlets. The Center for Missing and Exploited Children also posted Glenn as missing and assigned a case number to her report.
During the investigation information was developed and verified that Glenn was picked up by two juvenile acquaintances in the van that was captured on video. Those acquaintances then transported Glenn to a location in Decatur and dropped her off. Working with the FBI a specific location was developed, and Glenn was located there.
Glenn’s parents had signed a pick-up order at the Neaves Davis Center for Children after reporting her missing, Glenn was transported there where she was later returned to the custody of her parents.
The Sheriff’s Office assures the public that every missing person case is of high importance and is investigated with due diligence. We encourage anyone that may witness signs of someone planning or speaking of running away to report that to school, law enforcement, parents or someone of authority. Being fully cooperative with those investigating a missing person or runaway case is essential in locating them without further delays.
