The Gilbert teen who was reported missing since last week, has been found safe thousands of miles away from home.
Last week police announced a search for a missing 16-year-old Gilbert boy, Blaze Thibaudeau, who was reported missing around 5 p.m. on Monday. Reports stated that the teen taken by his mother and uncle and was believed to be also traveling with his older sister.
The Gilbert Police Department released information that Friday night, Blaze Thibaudeau was located safely at the Alcan Port of Entry near the eastern Alaska border. Reports state that he was with his mother,
, who does not have custodial rights, his uncle Brook Hale and his adult sister Abigail Thibaudeau. Both Spring Thibaudeau and Hale had warrants out for their arrests in connection to the teen’s disappearance. Alaska State Troopers arrested them. Abigal was not charged.
Both Spring Thibaudeau and Hale have been charged with custodial interference and conspiracy to commit custodial interference in Arizona. The group had traveled to Idaho and then up into Canada.
Ben Thibaudeau, the teen’s father had reported to authorities that his wife, daughter and brother-in-law believe Blaze to be a “Davidic servant who plays a significant role in the Savior’s return.” His wife became fascinated in end-of-days religious topics sometime in 2015 after the couple attended The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She became obsessed with authors who wrote on the topic of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and doomsday.
Details on Spring Thibaudeau and Hale’s extradition back to Arizona have not yet been announced.
