Devin Bond Missing 2 Years

MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) - The Rutherford County Sheriff's Office has positively identified the human remains found last week as the remains of missing teen Devin Bond. 

Searchers found remains in the Barfield area of Rutherford County on Wednesday afternoon according to the Rutherford County Sheriff. Bond, a student at Riverdale High School, had been missing for over two years. 

Sheriff Mike Fitzhugh said the remains were found near the area where Bond was last seen. No foul play was involved. 

Heather Bond, Devin Bond's mother, posted a statement on Facebook on Wednesday evening.

"We are devastated at the loss of our son, Devin. Our goal was to bring Devin home and we are bringing him home, just not in the way we had hope. Rest In Peace sweet boy and we will be counting the days until we are together again. Thank you to Detective Pinson, Rutherford County Sheriff's Department, and all the searchers that helped locate our son, we are forever grateful."

Bond, 16 at the time, disappeared on March 31, 2017 while on spring break. Bond's mother, Heather, said he was playing video games at home when she went to bed the night of his disappearance.

Sheriff Fitzhugh said in a brief statement:

“We are very sad about the outcome as we know this is devastating to Devin’s family,” Fitzhugh said. “I hope this helps Devin’s family to start the healing process.”
