Editor’s note: A previous version of this story contained the photo of a child who is not missing, which the sheriff’s office sent by mistake under Jaedyn Bennett’s name. A photo of Jaedyn is not available at this time. Local 6 apologizes for any confusion or concern caused by publishing the other teen’s photo. We will add a photo/description of Jaedyn to this story once we have it.
