Missing Teen With Schizophrenia Found After Being Spotted in Background of Popular Twitch Stream (VIDEO)

A 17-year-old Michigan resident, who has been missing for months, was discovered after his brother noticed him in the background of a Twitch stream.

Troy Coleman of Flint, who suffers from schizophrenia, went missing on May 21 of this year and was feared to be dead.

However, in an amazing turn of events, Troy’s brother Trent Coleman spotted him in a live stream being streamed by Faze Lacy, a popular Twitch streamer.

In the live stream, Lacy believes Troy is on drugs due to his bizarre behavior, but in an email to Lacy, Troy’s brother Trent wrote, “Hello, my name is Trent Coleman and my missing little brother from Michigan was on Clix and Lacy’s stream in Miami. He is not on drugs, he is schizophrenic. He has been missing for three months, and his case was put on homicide in Michigan.”

After finding out Troy was missing, Lacy contacted Miami authorities, who were able to locate Troy and arrange his transportation back to Michigan to be with his family.

The Flint Township Police Department wrote, “A heartfelt THANK YOU to everybody who shared the missing person information about Troy Coleman. We are working with local authorities to arrange his safe return to Michigan to be with his family.”
