Sheriff: 2 Ohio teens found dead after Amber Alert; third teen led investigators to bodies

OTTAWA, Ohio - The bodies of two Ohio teens were found Thursday evening after they were reported missing in an Amber Alert earlier in the day.

According to the Putnam County Sheriff's Office, a 17-year-old who was also reported missing was detained and gave investigators the location of the bodies at 5:20 p.m.

The alert was canceled around 3:15 p.m. after law enforcement officials located the teen and the car in which the teens were believed to be traveling parked at a Marathon gas station in West Columbus, according to WSYX in Columbus.

Aaron Romes, 17; Michael Aaron Fey, 17; and Blaine Romes, 14 were missing for several hours before the alert was issued around 11 a.m. All three teens are from Ottawa, Ohio, about 90 miles away from where the car was found.

The name of the surviving teen has not been released, WCPO reported. 

The Amber Alert was issued after the mother of at least one of the boys came home around 5:30 a.m. Thursday morning and couldn't find the boys. She described her home as a "crime scene" to investigators.

No charges have been filed at this time.

Autopsies are scheduled and the case remains under investigation.
