Missing Michigan teenager spotted by brother on Twitch stream in Miami

A Michigan boy who went missing in May was reportedly spotted on an influencer’s livestream in Miami for the first time in weeks.

Troy Coleman, 17, was last seen on May 17 in Mt. Morris Township, Michigan, his father, Weston Coleman, told Townsquare Media immediately after he was reported missing.

The missing teenager’s father said he was unarmed and posed no threat to anyone, but was suffering from hallucinations and needed medication that he did not have with him.

In May, several possible sightings of the teen were reported, including a sighting of a person resembling Troy at a car show outside of Flint, Michigan. None of the previous reports have been confirmed.

News that the missing teen was spotted 1,200 miles away in South Florida last week was shared by streamer FaZe Lacy on Wednesday after Troy’s brother reportedly emailed the streamer saying he believed Troy had randomly appeared in a livestream video.

The brother, who identified himself as Trent Coleman in the message shared by Lacy, said police were already investigating whether Troy was dead.

“Yesterday on stream he came up to me and Clix and now his family knows he’s alive and in Miami. I wasn’t sure if I should make this public but I hope this somehow helps his family find him,” wrote Lacy, a social media influencer and Twitch streamer.

The boy, who Lacy claims is Troy, is seen in the video shirtless, wearing neon green swim shorts and what appears to be a black sweatshirt.

It was not immediately clear how the streamer identified the missing teenager in his video.
