WEST JORDAN — A 14-year-old boy was reported missing by his family on Saturday to West Jordan police. It was confirmed he was found approximately a day later and had returned home safely.

The teen was last seen in West Jordan at approximately 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, according to his mother. She said he left money in his room he did not take with him, nor did he take any clothes or belongings.

“He has never done anything like this before. He has not been upset about anything, I just don’t think that it’s a simple runaway,” she said.

West Jordan police said they do not believe the boy is endangered, but they are actively following up with family members and going through the investigative process.

The boy was last seen wearing a hoodie and dark pants, with short hair and no dreadlocks as he had been pictured with.


Edit: This article originally reported the teen was from West Valley and has since been updated.
