Endangered Indiana boy found safe, parents arrested in Logansport raid

A 14-year-old Indiana boy who was reported missing for over two weeks was located and his parents were taken into custody Wednesday morning in Logansport, according to state police.

Bryson Muir, son of former NFL player Daniel Muir, was considered in "extreme danger" after he was previously last seen on June 16 leaving a family member’s home in Ohio with his mother, Kristen Muir, in a white 2015 Chevrolet Suburban. 

Around 6 a.m. Wednesday, members of the Indiana State Police SWAT team executed search and arrest warrants at the Muir's residence located in the 1700 block of West US Highway 24 in Logansport, Indiana.

Daniel and Kristen Muir were taken into custody without incident and sent to Cass County Jail, police said. Bryson, who had no visible injuries, was placed in the care and custody of the Cass County Department of Child Services.

Daniel Muir, 40, was charged with one felony count of obstruction of justice and one misdemeanor count of domestic battery. Kristen Muir, 38, was also charged with obstruction of justice.

On June 18, the Cass County Department of Child Services asked Indiana State Police to investigate allegations of domestic battery against Bryson. 

The alleged abuse reportedly took place at the Muir family home, a property owned by the Servant Leader’s Foundation.

On Thursday, authorities visited the Muir residence where they said Bryson's parents, Daniel and Kristen, were showing signs of cooperation in the investigation. However, on Friday, the parents were supposed to meet with detectives and backed out at the last minute, which police say signals an unwillingness to cooperate.

"The attorney contacted our investigators indicating that the parents were backing out of that arrangement. To us, that signaled a lack of cooperation. And, which was disappointing, because yesterday we felt we had built a little bit of inroads with them," said Captain Galaviz.

On Friday, a Silver Alert was issued for Bryson Muir. Police released two photos of Bryson, one of which showed the boy with a swollen eye
