UPDATE (5/15) -- The Charlotte County Sheriff's Office reports that Sage Cambron has been found and is safe.

Brenda Cambron is in custody.

UPDATE: The biological mother of missing juvenile Sage Cambron is now wanted by the Charlotte County sheriff's office for her involvement in Sage's disappearance.

Police say a warrant has been issued for the arrest of Brenda Cambron on the charges of kidnapping, interference of child custody and removing a minor from the state. The warrant has national extradition.

Brenda Cambron is described as 5’4″, 180 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. She is driving a 2005 black Honda 2 door, FL Tag EKAI65. Detectives believe she has left the State of Florida with Sage and is headed back to Louisiana.

Investigators have released an image of Brenda and Sage in a car passing through a toll plaza on Veterans Memorial Highway in Tampa.

Detectives confirmed that Sage Cambron’s parents, Christopher and Brenda Cambron, had their parental rights revoked by Florida Department of Children and Families and also have active no contact orders preventing them from contacting her.

CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. -- Investigators continue looking for the autistic Port Charlotte teenager who went missing from her foster home Monday, and have made contact with her biological father in Louisiana.

15-year-old Sage Cambron was reported missing Monday morning from her foster home on Hemenway Avenue in Port Charlotte. Authorities say she may be with her biological parents, Christopher and Brenda Cambron.

Tuesday, the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office says Christopher was located at his residence in Frierson, Louisiana.

Brenda and Sage have not been located yet, nor has their possible vehicle, a black 2005 Honda Civic 2-door.

The sheriff's office is working with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and they say the case does not meet the criteria for an Amber Alert.

Authorities say Sage is autistic and has the academic mentality of a 5-year-old.

Christopher and Brenda Cambron were previously arrested in Dixie County, Florida in 2016 on drug charges.

Christopher Cambron is known for posting disturbing videos in which he dresses up like "The Joker" and rants at the camera.
