Eaton police: Missing 14-year-old found safe

EATON, Ind. (WISH) — A 14-year-old boy missing more than a week has been found safe, the Eaton Police Department reported Friday night.

“Medics are checking him out right now and we will be conducting interviews,” the agency said in a post on Facebook.

The post did not say where Scottie Morris was found.

The search for Scottie had included volunteers searching the area, police dogs checking around bridges, and Indiana State Police helicopters using infrared technology. On Thursday night, the community had a candlelight vigil for the boy.

Morris had last been seen at 8:30 p.m. March 16 in the town of about 1,500 residents that’s a 90-minute drive northeast of downtown Indianapolis.

The Eaton police posted the news on Facebook shortly before 11 p.m. Friday.
