Sheriff’s office searching for missing Port Charlotte teen with autism

Deputies are still searching for a teenager with autism in what began as a runaway juvenile case. Now, the sheriff’s office believes she is with a biological parent, who no longer has custody of her.

Charlotte County Sheriff’s office is searching for 15-year-old Sage Cambron, who has autism and lives with a foster parent in Port Charlotte.

According to CCSO, detectives made contact with birth father Christopher Cambron at his home in Frierson, Louisiana Tuesday morning, but they are still actively searching for birth mother Brenda Cambron and the vehicle.

CCSO says Sage has an academic mentality of a 5-year-old. They believe she may be with biological parents Brenda and Christopher Cambron, driving a 2005 black Honda Civic two-door with Florida license-plate tag EKA-I65.

The sheriff’s office says, “At this time the incident does not meet Amber Alert criteria.” Missing Child and Amber alerts require evidence of imminent danger. They say as the investigation continues to develop new information, an Amber Alert may be appropriate.

Sage was last seen Sunday night at her home on Hemenway Avenue. She was wearing green pajamas and green shorts with green-yellow sneakers.

CCSO and Peace River K9 Search and Rescue are investigating.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff’s office immediately.
