#FindSamantha: 13 Year Old Samantha Dodson Missing Since 12/3/13 in Oregon City, OR (Endangered Runaway … Believed to be with 40 Year Old Kelsey McCune)(Update: Samantha Dodson Found Safe, McCune Arrested Charged with Rape & Sodomy)
13 year old Samantha Dodson has been missing since December 3, 2013 in Oregon City, Oregon. Samantha Dodson was last seen Tuesday night and may be traveling with a 40-year-old transient man, Kelsey McCune. Samantha’s parents noticed she was missing Wednesday morning, when they went to wake her up to go to school. Authorities consider Samantha an endangered runaway. Two two might be camping. Because what else would a transient be doing who has no known address? McCune has no known address, but he is known to make money doing freelance computer work and he also may be carrying large duffel bags and backpacks with camping gear.

Police called the teen an “endangered runaway” and said she may be in the company of Kelsey McCune, 40, a family friend who authorities said has no permanent address.
It was unclear if the teen left home willingly; however police said she does not have a history of running away.
Dodson, who recently dyed her hair red, was described by police as 5-foot-4 and 125 pounds with brown eyes and a slim build.
Police said McCune is 6 feet tall and 170 pounds with a glass eye and salt-and-pepper hair.
According to FOX 12-OR, 40 year old Kelsey McCune is a long time friend of the family … of course he is. Because there is nothing more special than parents not realizing that a 40 year old, so-called friend of the family, is taking just a little too much interest in your 13 year old daughter!
The Dodson family says McCune is a family friend.
“Kelsey is a family friend of my parents. I met him a couple times in passing, but they’ve known him for years, and I know he was recently down on his luck,” said Sarah Dodson.
Samantha’s family now believes the teen and McCune had been communicating without anyone knowing. When they tried to confront McCune about it Wednesday, they say he wouldn’t return their calls, and won’t answer his messages.
“It’s my understanding that Kelsey doesn’t have a permanent residence, and we think they could be looking for a place to camp because there’s not a place to take her,” said Sarah Dodson.
The search for Samantha stretched to the Newell Creek area of Oregon City on Thursday, where a SWAT team scoured the terrain in the area.
Clackamas County deputies say they consider Samantha an endangered runaway mainly because of the age difference between her and McCune. They are also concerned about Samantha’s welfare because of the record-cold temperatures expected this week.

13 Year Old Jayden Thomas & 14 Year Old Braxton Wood Missing Since 8/26/13 in Clare, MI (UPDATE: Found Safe in Chicago, IL)
13 year old Jayden Thomas and 14 year old Braxton Wood have been missing since August 26, 2013 in Clare, Michigan.
The Isabella County Sheriff’s Department says 13-year-old Jayden Thomas and 14-year-old Braxton Wood — of Clare and Mt. Pleasant — were last seen on Monday, Aug. 26 in Clare.
Jayden is described as 5 feet, 3 inches tall and weighs about 120 lbs. She has blonde hair and hazel/blue eyes. Braxton is 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs 125 lbs., and has blonde hair and blue eyes.
Clare is located at the crossroads of US-27 and US-10, about 2 1/2 hours from both Mackinaw City and Detroit.
Ed Wood and Braxton’s mother, Sarah Kiley, were with Jayden’s parents, Kelly and Art Drinkwine, Monday night. They said it doesn’t make any sense at all why the teens would run. Police say the two took off in a 2005 black Ford Explorer last Monday morning.
“It’s like they’ve fallen off the face of the earth. Nobody can find them. And I don’t know how,” said Kelly Drinkwine.
But police say they do have evidence the two aren’t too far away. Isabella County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Tim Swanson said a camera caught the vehicle crossing the Mackinac Bridge last week. He also said cell phone towers in Bay City and Saginaw pinged the teens’ phones, but an exact location couldn’t be determined.
“We’re not mad. We’re not upset. We just want them home and make sure they’re safe,” said Ed Wood.
At this point, the sheriff’s office considers the two teens runaways, and because there is no evidence of imminent danger, there hasn’t been an Amber Alert issued. But both Jayden’s and Braxton’s parents aren’t buying it.
The missing Michigan teens who left town together nearly two weeks ago have been found safe in Chicago this morning, authorities said.
Jayden Thomas, 13, of Clare, and Braxton Wood, 14, of Mount Pleasant, were first reported missing since Aug. 26. Braxton apparently took his mother’s black 2005 Ford Explorer during the early morning hours and picked up Jayden before taking off.
They were due to start their freshman year at different high schools last week, and their parents said the two even briefly broke up because of that.
Local law enforcement found the couple this morning in the back of the Ford Explorer in a parking lot adjacent to a Mobil gas station in Wrigleyville, a neighborhood in Chicago, Sgt. Tim Edeling of the Chicago Police Department 19th District told ABCNews.com.
If anyone has any information about the missing teens, Jayden Thomas and Braxton Wood, please contact the Isabella County Sheriff’s Office at 989-772-5911 or Private Investigator Mike Cook directly at 616-466-4274.
