What happened to Jenelle Evans Son
What happened to Jenelle Evans Son – Alum of Teen Mom 2 Five months after Jenelle Evans was given custody of her son, Jace, he was reported as a runaway and has since been located safe.
After going missing for five months, Jenelle Evans’ son Jace, 14, was found safe.
Evans, 31, released a statement on Tuesday, August 15, via her manager August Keen. Thank you to the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Department and everyone else for their concerns, Jace has been located and is now securely at home with Jenelle and his family, Keen said in a statement.
Evans revealed to Us that Jace had previously gotten into problems and had his phone taken away just before it was announced that he had come home.
The statement added, “As a boy mom, kids can act out and rebel as I’m sure the majority of us all did as kids too.” This has nothing to do with my relationship with [my husband] David [Eason], we do not argue or fight in front of our children. Jace got into trouble at school, we decided to take away his phone, and that’s when he decided to run off. Jace is a good kid, and we’re not dealing with anything that most families don’t deal with while raising children.
The authorities were looking for 14-year-old Jace when TMZ was the first to disclose his disappearance on Tuesday. He was last spotted leaving his school earlier that day while wearing a gray hoodie that read “Classical Charter Schools of America.”
Barbara Evans, Jenelle’s mother, who last spoke to Jace on August 14 was contacted by the publication. Barbara, 70, said Jace appeared to be in good spirits at the time. Barbara further revealed that when she called Jenelle on Tuesday morning to check on her daughter, Jenelle allegedly ordered her mother to leave her alone.
Jenelle shared a photo of her three children—sons Jace and Kaiser, both age 9, and daughter Ensley, six—as they set off for their first day of school last month. (Jenelle shares Jace with her ex-boyfriend Andrew Lewis, Kaiser with her ex-fiancé Nathan Griffith, and Ensley with her current 35-year-old spouse Eason.)
After spending more than ten years in Barbara’s custody, Jenelle was granted custody of Jace in March, according to a report.
According to Jenelle, “My mother agrees it’s time for Jace to be back with his siblings and living with a mother and father,” she said in an exclusive statement to Us at the time. She also believes that Jace needs to be around a father figure in order to learn “boy things” and hear “men talk.” She has observed how David raises my kids, so she is confident in our ability to handle it.
Jenelle has been open about the ups and downs she has experienced with her spouse over the years. The couple appeared to be at conflict in December 2022 during Jenelle’s birthday celebration after the former MTV personality alleged that Eason was absent from the event.
Prior to her termination from Teen Mom 2, Jenelle previously broke up with Eason in 2019 after he shot and killed their dog, Nugget. Kaiser and Ensley were also briefly taken out of the couple’s custody. Jenelle said in a March 2020 YouTube video that they later made amends.
She said at the time, “I left him and I was like, this isn’t going to be good when I go back to him. “I know some people don’t understand, but there have been a lot worse things in my life than attempting to mend things with my husband. I was ready to try it again for myself.
