payton was found today. Juvenile Officer Myka Sample tracked him down near JJ's truckstop, to a home where he had been staying for the last week. She took him into custody around 6 pm today. He was reunited with his mother. She is very greatful for the work Mrs. Sample put into finding her son.
I was dispatched by the Saline county sheriff, to aid in the recovery...
Thank you Deputy Teague in the recovery! Glad he is home safe and sound with his mother. There sure has been a lot of runaways lately....just don't know what these kids are thinking!
So very glad he was found safe and sound!!
Couldn't agree more Evan.
