CARROLL COUNTY, Ohio  Update: Missing 14-year-old Carroll County boy found dead after days of searching, authorities say

The Carroll County Sheriffs Office will hold a news conference Friday afternoon about Jonathon Minard, the 14-year-old boy who went missing on April 13.

Jonathon was last seen over the weekend. On Wednesday, authorities announced that there was a person of interest in the case.

The person of interest, who authorities have not named, has been questioned twice. That person agreed to take a polygraph test but later changed their mind, according to the sheriffs office.

On Tuesday, over 100 volunteers searched a six-mile area around the Dellroy Fire House, scouring the hilly and wooded terrain for any sign of the missing boy.

Relatives said Jonathon was picked up on Friday to do some work, including milking cows, on a farm in New Harrisburg and later was taken to a family friend's home closer to Carrollton.

Investigators said the boy complained of a toothache and was left alone at the residence. After that, he vanished.
