The Michigan State Police Gaylord Post has been requested to assist law enforcement agencies in Tennessee and Kentucky in locating a missing 3-year-old male, Noah Clare.

Police said they were abducted by a family member, 32-year-old Jacob Clare of Beaver Dam, Kentucky, and possibly en route or in northern Michigan near Harbor Springs.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation issued an Endangered Child Alert for the 3-year-old, who has been missing from Gallatin since Saturday.

Police said Jacob Clare is wanted by Gallatin police for custodial interference.


Noah is 3’5” tall, weighs 40 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes.

On Monday, Gallatin police said it’s believed Jacob Clare left Ohio County, Kentucky either late Nov. 5 or earlier Nov. 6 and was en route to Gallatin to drop off his son, Noah, with family. According to police, he never showed up. The TBI believe they may be headed to, or are in the East Tennessee and Gatlinburg area.
