OTTAWA — The bodies of two of the three teen boys thought to be kidnapped from an Ottawa trailer park Thursday morning have been located. Investigators found the bodies after the third teen, who was discovered in Columbus Thursday afternoon after a statewide Amber Alert was issued, told officials their location.


At 5:31 a.m. on Thursday, the Ottawa Police Department was dispatched to 1350 North Perry St. at Elkcrest Trailer Park, Lot 61, after the mother arrived home to discover what appeared to be a crime scene and three teens missing from the home as well as a silver 2006 Chevy HHR. According to Lt. Joshua Strick, there were no signs of an abduction.


The Amber Alert was officially issued at 11:21 a.m. for Blake Romes, 17, Blaine Romes, 14, and Michael Fey, 17. At 1:05 p.m., the Columbus Police Department contacted Ottawa officials to inform them they had found the vehicle. A juvenile was located in the car and taken into custody by the Columbus police. Reports indicate the missing teen found in Columbus was 17-year-old Fey.

The Amber Alert was cancelled around 3 p.m., according to Strick.

At 5:20 p.m., Putnam County Sheriff’s Department investigators stated Fey, who was located in the vehicle in Columbus, gave the location of the bodies of the previous missing juveniles. Multiple agencies assisted and located the two bodies.

Assistant Putnam County Coroner Dr. Mandy Klass has ordered autopsies to determine the cause of the deaths. The investigation is ongoing and no further information was available at press time.
