The 14-year-old who disappeared on March 16 in Indiana has been found safe.
The Eaton Indiana Police Department posted on Facebook around 11 p.m. Friday night that Scottie Morris had been found safe.
On Saturday morning around 5:00 a.m., the department added that the teenager had been found by a member of the police force on Hartford Street at Harris Street in Eaton, according to Fox59.
Scottie was taken to IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital to be evaluated. He was then placed in a “secure environment” by Delaware County Child Protective Services.
Police have said his family is cooperating with the investigation.
A candlelight vigil was held for Scottie when a week had passed. Teresa Wilkerson was one of the organizers of the event. After speaking with the family, she told Fox59 they wanted to “extend their greatest appreciation to the Eaton Police Department, the fire department, to all the communities around the world that have prayed for this.”
“Scottie, I think is the catalyst for an amazing movement in the world coming together and specifically praying one child at a time at home,” Wilkerson told the local TV station.
Police said on Facebook that interviews will be conducted regarding the disappearance.
Scottie went missing around 8:30 p.m. on March 16, prompting Eaton police to ask residents to check any home surveillance footage they may have.
