LOGANSPORT — Indiana State Police has issued a Silver Alert for a missing 14-year-old boy missing from Logansport who may be a victim of child abuse.

The teen was last seen on Sunday, June 16, 2024, leaving his Grandma's Cheryl Wright's house in Ohio with his mother, Kristen Muir, in a white 2015 Chevrolet Suburban belonging to Servant Leader’s Foundation in Kokomo.

His father, Daniel Muir, is a former Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle.

According to Indiana State Police, Daniel and Kristen Muir agreed to bring the teen to meet with ISP investigators at the Peru Post on Friday.

The agreement was to meet at 12 p.m. At approximately 11 a.m. police said the Muirs backed out of the arrangement.

The parents have now obtained legal counsel and law enforcement must communicate through them.

Wright says the teen showed up to her home with a black eye and swollen face.

After he and his mom left Kristen's home, Police say Wright called the police with concerns.

Shortly after leaving the house, ISP says the vehicle Kristen was driving was pulled over by the Garfield Heights Police Department in Ohio, but the teen was not in the car.

On June 18, ISP was asked by the Cass County Department of Child Services to investigate allegations that the teen was abused in his home in the 1700 block of W U.S. Highway 24 in Logansport.

Police say the property is owned by the religious group, Servant Leader's Foundation.

Wright says she talked to Kristen, who brought the teen to Ohio because she was concerned about his safety, but she said the teen only stayed at her home for a few days before his mom decided to take him back to Logansport.

"We've talked about those concerns and she always assured me that the children were safe," said Wright. "She told me that she was taking him home, and I knew that that wasn't true."

ISP, along with the Cass County Sheriff’s Department and Cass County DCS, have not been able to locate the teen since he was last seen in Ohio.

On Thursday, June 27, ISP announced they were able to get in contact with the teen's parents, Daniel and Kristen Muir.

"While the Muirs are beginning to show signs of cooperation, Bryson has still not been seen or located by investigators from either ISP or DCS," ISP said in a statement.

The teen's grandmother, Cheryl Wright, has this message for his parents:

"If they are good parents and if they are good people and if they love their children, they will just show us that Bryson is okay. That's all we want. His family here is worried about him. He has an uncle, and he has a grandmother or great grandmother that is worried about him and all the other children as well," Wright said.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the teen, Daniel or Kristen Muir is asked to contact ISP at 1-800-382-0689 or 911.
