Treder’s sister said Thursday that the family believes he is safe. Mary Treder, 55, said from her home in Cedaredge, Colo., that her family doesn’t believe Michael Treder came to Detroit for the science fair and called that an excuse for disappearing.
“Police have confirmation Mike has left Detroit and is in Canada,” the family said in a statement. “We believe he went on his own volition and is safe. So there is no longer a need for an investigation into his whereabouts. The family would like to thank everyone for their concern.”
