"He was just an all around good boy, he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time,” said Tillery.

Detectives said they are still working leads, but they don’t have much to go on.

"I don’t know if we are any closer yet, we haven’t developed any solids leads and haven’t developed probable cause to charge anybody,” said Captain Corinne Stannish.

Spann has been missing for about a hundred days.

"I think It’s safe to say that for whatever reason he is missing, it is not a good one,” said Stannish.

If you have any information on this case contact the Sarasota Police Department.
