BUFFALO, New York — A Florida teenager who is wanted for questioning for his grandmother’s death was detained by US Border patrol agents late Friday.

Florida police began searching for 15-year-old Logan Mott and his grandmother, Kristina French, 53, Wednesday after they did not show up at the airport to pick up Mott’s father who had returned from a vacation with his girlfriend.

Officials say when Mott’s father, a corrections officer, arrived home and realized several weapons he owned were missing.  A 2015 Dodge Dart was also missing from his mother’s home, the New York Post reports.

Police got a lead on the teen after spotting him on surveillance footage in Pennsylvania while driving his mother’s car on Thursday.

On Friday, officials said found a body that matched French’s description shallowly buried in Mott’s backyard. Officials are waiting for an autopsy for a positive identification.

Police said that Mott made it all the way to Buffalo, N.Y. before he was apprehended.
