Blake Deven: Fayetteville police, FBI searching for teen who may have vanished years ago


FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WTVD) -- Police are asking for the public's help in finding a Fayetteville boy who disappeared years ago.

While investigators were conducting interviews in a separate Fayetteville Police Department (FPD) investigation, several members of Blake Julian Trenton Deven's family reported that they had not seen him in several years.

On Wednesday, March 27, the FPD and the Federal Bureau of Investigation searched three locations in Fayetteville for Blake as part of an investigation, police said.

Investigators also shared a photo of Blake that was taken in 2012 and an age-progressed photo showing what he may look like today at age 17.

ABC11 asked FPD when Blake was reported missing, but the department was unable to share any further information.

"Due to the unusual circumstances of his reported disappearance, the Fayetteville Police Department's Homicide Unit, which also investigates missing and endangered persons, is leading the investigation," FPD said in a news release.

Anyone with information concerning Blake's whereabouts is asked to please call the Fayetteville Police Department tip line at (910) 578-2697.
