Search Underway for Missing Endangered Teen

BROOKSVILLE – The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office is currently searching for missing and endangered adult, 18-year-old Dylan J. Thornton.
Officials say Thornton was last seen in the late evening hours, after leaving a party in the Spring Ridge subdivision.
Friends who were with Thornton when he left the party advised deputies that Thornton was possibly using illegal narcotics and may have been suffering from an “altered state” when he was last seen.
Thornton may have been in crisis and reportedly removed all of his clothing before running into a wooded area near Spring Ridge.
Thornton’s physical description is as follows:
White Male
Date of Birth – 09-09-1997
140 lbs.
Brown Hair
Hazel Eyes
We ask all residents in the area west of Sunshine Grove Road, please check properties, sheds, barns, etc., incase Thornton took refuge in one of these areas. Please do not approach Thornton, call 9-1-1 immediately.
If you have seen Dylan Thornton or know his current whereabouts please call the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office at 352-754-6830 or your local law enforcement agency. Again, due to Thornton’s possible “altered state”, please do not approach; call 9-1-1.

  • What was the official cause of death?

  • No I never have done drugs. That is a choice I made. Just like this kid made a choice.

    No I would not feel sympathy for a family member either.

    I never said I hated the kid. I never met him. If I did I wouldn’t hang out with him because he is a junkie. Don’t say he is not. It’s obvious he was smoking bath salts.. You going to say that was his first time doing drugs? I doubt it.

  • Did Don do it? He sounds like he did not like this kid at all. Maybe the police need to look at him for this. Something is not right here seems a lot of good comments about him and here wehave a few that seem to have hate for him.

  • I really cant believe our neighbors, our community members, people who go to church, pray to their God, could say such horrible things about someone who’s missing or passed. We have all made mistakes, I bet every single one of you have made at least one stupid choice in your life, you don’t deserve a death sentence because of it. Shame on you!

    Tuesday, 15 September 2015, 3:58 pm
  • S, you seem to have an issue with Vowels !!!!! El Crapo, you don’t really want to meet any of the regulars here. They will eat you up and spit you out tough guy. It is sad this boy is dead, and yes, making such negative comments about a young teen who has passed is just wrong.

  • Yu guys are pitiful. That’s someone’s kid yur talking about. Imagine if it was yur child or grandchildren. How would u feel. That’s what’s wrong with ppl now a days. So quick to judge someone they don’t know. Yu think the family wants to see yur ugly snotty comments? Yur what’s wrong with the world now a days. Did yu know ppl kill their self of stupid comments like yours. Should watch what yu say cuz yu can be the reason why that person is no longer around and BTW don’t know if yu know this cuz yur head is to far up yur rectum but the found his body. So maybe yu should keep yur ugly comments to yur self. If yu have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all!!!

    R.I.P Dylan Thornton!

  • Is there an update?

    Tuesday, 15 September 2015, 12:33 pm
  • You people absolutely ridiculous. I can not belive people would say su ch hurtful and ride things about a man none of you even knew including myself. He died, and his family is grieving and you people have the audicity to shame not only the deceased man, but his family as well. You elderly people blame the young generation for the problems YOUR generation caused. Who raised this young generation ? Keep your negative comments to yourself and please do not Harass the family by posting rude things about his lifestyle. That is just evil.

    Tuesday, 15 September 2015, 12:28 pm
  • His body was found
