A missing teen was located safe in north Fort Worth late Thursday.
Christian Putnam, 16, ran away from home off County Road 1590 in Alvord between 3 and 4 p.m. Sunday. Family and friends spread word around the community, including posting missing person posters and sharing the story on social media.
Wise County Sheriff David Walker said two of his investigators, two school resource officers and two other officers were involved in the search for Putnam. Family and friends even asked people to meet at the Putnam home Thursday evening to begin a door-to-door search for the missing teen. The Sheriff’s Office also sent out a missing person alert Thursday afternoon asking for the public’s help in locating the boy.
Walker said Putnam was found in north Fort Worth near a friend’s house Thursday night and taken into custody by Fort Worth Police. He was taken to a juvenile detention facility due to repeated runaway activity, Walker said.
