Serana D. Boysaw
MOUNT VERNON — A 14-year-old Mount Vernon girl returned home today after being missing since July 9.
According to Mount Vernon Police Department Detective James Dechant, Serana D. Boysaw was safe as she returned to her home today, but was taken to the county probation office.
Boysaw was reported missing by her stepmother at 3 p.m. on July 9. Posts appeared on Facebook from Boysaw saying that she was OK. Her whereabouts were unknown, but MVPD believed she was possibly in Indiana, West Virginia, North Carolina or Florida. Dechant did not elaborate on where Boysaw has been when he contacted the News to report she was home.
Dechant believes she was not abducted and went on her own free will with boyfriend Larry Beedy, 16, Mount Vernon. Her communications did not say why she left or what she was doing.
It is believed they were driving a 1997 gold Lincoln Continental, license plate FEV 4974, owned by neighbor Terry Kovach, 32, Mount Vernon. Attempts on Facebook to have Boysaw return phone calls were unsuccessful, Deshant said.
The police department was assisted by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the Ohio Attorney General’s office.
