    Jacob Lee Caldwell went missing from Sugarcreek Twp. in August. In March, the FBI issued a $15,000 reward for information directly leading to Jacob?s location.

    BEAVERCREEK ?

    A Beavercreek woman whose husband was shot in Riverside days before her stepson Jacob Lee Caldwell went missing from Sugarcreek Twp. said she?s still hopeful the 14-year-old boy will be found.

    In March, the FBI issued a $15,000 reward for information directly leading to Jacob?s location. But asked if there are any new details in the case, Sugarcreek Twp. Police Department detectives ? the local agency handling the case ? said no new information was available to share with the public.

    Jacob and his two siblings saw their father, Robert Caldwell, fatally shot in a Riverside parking lot at Woodman Drive and Linden Avenue in broad daylight, investigators said.



    Two days later, on Aug. 21, Jacob went missing. His grandparents, who were given custody, reported him lost.

    The FBI has said Jacob might not be in Ohio and said he might have a new look and identity. Authorities also said they believe someone knows the teen?s location.


    Jacob?s mother and Robert Caldwell?s ex-wife, Tawnney Caldwell, is among several people charged in relation to Caldwell?s death .


    The alleged shooter, Sterling Roberts, was captured in South Carolina and faces federal charges in Ohio. Already, Roberts pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in South Carolina to a charge of knowingly and unlawfully possessing a firearm, according to court documents.

    The charges against Tawnney Caldwell relate to aiding and abetting the illegal gun possession. She is also accused of destroying documents and cell phone data. She is held in Shelby County Jail. Her attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    A grand jury also indicted four other people, who are released from jail.

    Candice Caldwell ? Jacob Caldwell?s stepmom and Robert Caldwell?s wife at the time of his death ? told News Center 7 she can?t believe it?s been almost a year since Robert was killed. The pair were married less than a year, but had been together for six years. During that time, Ezekiel, 4, and Bailee, 2, were born.


    ?Me and the kids were his entire world,? she said. ?He really was the type of man any woman would want to be with.?

    Reflecting on her husband?s untimely death, Candice Caldwell said, ?I don?t wish bad upon anyone, but you can?t go be mad at someone and take their life away from their wife and kids. That?s not OK.?

    She said she prays Jacob is safe and says her faith will keep her strong as the case moves through the court system. Still, she remains saddened her husband and stepson are not with her young family.

    ?It tears me apart that they?re building this relationship with their older siblings, and Jacob is not here,? she said. ?I would love to have my husband here, but I know I?ll see him again, and that is where my trust lies.?
    Wonder if he was with maternal or paternal grandparents when he disappeared

    DAYTON ? A boy who witnessed his Beavercreek father being shot to death in a Riverside parking lot is still missing months after he disappeared, and today officials offered a $15,000 reward for information about the teenager.


    Federal prosecutors and local law enforcement announced the reward to locate Jacob Lee Caldwell, who saw Robert Caldwell, his father, killed in August 2017. Jacob?s mother, Tawnney Caldwell, was indicted in connection with her ex-husband?s death, according to prosecutors today.

    The FBI believes Jacob Caldwell might not be in Ohio, and they said he might have a new look and identity. Officials also said they believe someone knows where the teenager is.

    Jacob Caldwell and his two siblings saw their father shot and killed in a Riverside office building parking lot at Woodman Drive and Linden Avenue in broad daylight, investigators have said. Sterling H. Roberts had been held in connection with the shooting since his capture in South Carolina in the days after the shooting.


    Custody of the Caldwell children was given to the grandparents, who reported that Jacob ran away Aug. 21.


    Sugarcreek Twp. police Chief Michael Brown had said in September that the boy?s mother had been uncooperative in the search for her son, and police believed someone was helping Jacob Caldwell stay hidden.

    Billboards will be used to help find teen missing since just after his father was murdered

    by Gabi WarwickFriday, August 24th 2018

    MIAMI VALLEY, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - It's been just more than a year since Robert Caldwell was murdered in front of his children, and his 15-year-old son Jacob Caldwell went missing just days later.


    Now, new billboards will be used to help get the word out. Jacob was last seen in Sugarcreek Township on August 21, 2017. He was wearing a dark shirt, blue shorts and black shoes.




    Federal investigators are worried about Jacob's safety. If you know where he is, call Sugarcreek Township Police at 937-310-3200.

    Six people have since been indicted in connection with Caldwell's death, including his ex-wife.

    Jacob Caldwell, Ohio Boy Reported Missing 1 Year Ago, Found Safe by Police

    More than a year after his grandparents reported him missing, Ohio teen Jacob Caldwell has been found safe, police said Tuesday.

    Now 15, the boy had disappeared just days after witnessing the fatal shooting of his father, allegedly by his mother's boyfriend. Robert Caldwell was killed on Aug. 15, 2017, in a parking lot after leaving a therapy session with his three sons, authorities said.

    His ex-wife, Tawnney Caldwell and boyfriend Sterling Roberts were later charged in connection with Robert's murder, police said. Both have pleaded not guilty and are in jail awaiting trial. Friends and relatives of Tawnney were also indicted on aiding and abetting charges.

    Jacob's parents had been involved in a bitter custody dispute that ended with Robert being awarded sole custody of the three boys about a month before his death, authorities said.

    Acting on a tip, police went to a house in Miami Township, where Jacob was found sleeping in the basement, Sugarcreek Township Police Chief Mike Brown told InsideEdition.com Tuesday. Four adults were living in the home, all of them friends with Jacob's mother, he said.

    The boy was in good physical condition, but didn't say much, the chief said. Jacob is being evaluated at a juvenile detention center, where he will be held until he is returned to his paternal grandparents, who were awarded custody of him and his brothers after their father was killed.

    The four adults may face criminal charges, Brown said. The boy appeared to have been staying in the home of his own free will, but was not going to school, the chief said.

    "Someone talked him into running away," he added.

    Oh wow. That's brilliant news


    Edit : & WTF, friends of his mother hid him even after she had his father murdered in front of him? I mean, if they believed her that she was just trying to protect her kids up until that point, surely they starting questioning her actions afterwards??

    What was their long-term plan here? We're they going to hold him hostage when he turned 18?? I don't understand their thinking?

    I'm in the "she deserves the death penalty" camp, and so do those heartless and brainless sacks of shit who helped that cunt out.

    You know a kid was missing, that the bitch shot her husband in front of her kids and you still didn't do anything?

    Yeah? You're human shit and your life isn't worth a goddamn thing, so you deserve to die.
    Don't like what I have to say? I respect that. Now go fuck yourself.
