Two teens dead in case that triggered Amber Alert

(OTTAWA, Ohio) - Two of the three teens that disappeared from Putnam County Thursday, prompting an Amber Alert, have been found dead. The third is in custody.

The Putnam County Sheriff's Office says 17-year-old Michael Fey was found in a vehicle that police had been searching for. It was located at a gas station at West Broad Street and Hague Ave. in Columbus Thursday afternoon shortly before 1:30 p.m.

The Amber Alert that was heard on Newsradio WTAM 1100 was canceled, but an "endangered missing children" advisory was issued for the other two.

Sheriff Michael Chandler says in a news release that Fey drove to Columbus and told investigators where they could find the bodies of the other two boys: Blake Romes, 17, and Blaine Romes, 14.

Chandler says the coroner has ordered autopsies on the bodies to determine a cause of death. It was not immediately known where the bodies were found.

The Amber Alert was first issued when a mother in the northwest Ohio village of Ottawa came home at 5:30 a.m. to find the boys missing. She told police their home looked "like a crime scene." 

The Amber Alert was issued at 11:21 a.m., according to Ottawa Police.
