On Tuesday, state officials said the search for Harley Dilly has been canceled and the boy has been recovered.

A vague statement from the Ohio Attorney General's Office sent to media this morning said the "child has been recovered." No other details were released.

Harley Dilly, 14, disappeared on Dec. 20. He was last seen walking to school.

What initially started as a search by local authorities soon drew the attention of state and federal agencies as multiple organizations joined in what became a nationwide search for the teen.

Since his disappearance, thousands of flyers have been distributed across the state and country. His case has been featured on "Good Morning America" and "LIVE PD."

Police and rescue teams searched 150 acres of land around Port Clinton.

On Tuesday at 12 p.m. police will hold a news conference regarding Harley Dilly. More info here.

No further information was released at this time.
