Jenelle Evans’ teen son, Jace, has reportedly gone missing again for the third time in two months.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ Friday that the 14-year-old allegedly escaped his house from a window and police were called to the “Teen Mom” star’s home at around 8 p.m. local time Thursday.
He reportedly snuck out without a cell phone on him.
Per TMZ, Evans’ house is surrounded by woods, adding to the concern for Jace’s safety.
The teen has reportedly been missing for at least 16 hours and police have added him to the nationwide database for missing persons.
Page Six has reached out to the authorities for comment but did not immediately hear back.
