Family: Missing New Haven teen found safe

Isaiah Spillers, 15, was last seen on New Year's Eve.

NEW HAVEN, Ind. (WANE) A New Haven teen has been found in Fort Wayne. Very little details are available right now, but family members of 15-year-old Isaiah Spillers told NewsChannel 15 he turned himself in to Fort Wayne Police around 8 p.m. Wednesday.

On Monday, Spillers was reported as a runaway by his mother. At the time, New Haven Police did not suspect foul play, but said time is of the essence because of the freezing temperatures.

Isaiah Spillers left his home on Baywood Drive on New Haven on New Year’s Eve and said he was going to a friend’s house down the street. When he hadn’t returned by Monday afternoon, his mother contacted the home where he said he would be and was told Spillers had left that house at 8:00 p.m. the night before and may have gone to a party.

Hundreds of missing posters were passed out and Facebook posts were shared thousands of times during the search for Spillers.
