PORT CHARLOTTE — There are still no positive reports regarding a “rare brain-eating amoeba” that a local teen is thought to be battling, officials said Tuesday.

Caleb Ziegelbauer, 13, of Port Charlotte, is undergoing treatment at Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida in Fort Myers, where he was diagnosed and put on “an amoeba protocol,” said his aunt, Elizabeth Ziegelbauer.
