Jace from Teen Mom goes missing

According to TMZ, Jace went missing on Friday, September 29, and is believed to have left through a window. The police added the runaway teen to a nationwide database for missing persons.

He was found safe almost 24 hours after he went missing. Jenelle confirmed her son was safe in a video on TikTok on Saturday and claimed his behavior was down to his “girlfriend.”

He was taken to the hospital and has not returned to Jenelle’s home. Her mom Barbara – who had custody of Jace for years – was spotted at the North Carolina hospital on Saturday, sources claimed.

What happened to Jace Evans?

Jace has gone missing three times in less than two months since he turned 14 years old. In mid-August, Jace ran from his school after having a heated argument with a teacher. 

According to an incident report, he left the school on foot before search dogs were sent out. Police found out he was hiding behind his school in the trees due to his Snapchat location.

Shortly after he was found safe, Jenelle said in a statement, as per The Sun: “Jace is a good kid, and we’re not dealing with anything that most families don’t deal with while raising children.”
