Missing Pacoima Boy, 17, Found Safe
A “critical missing” Pacoima teenager, who had left home after a family argument, was found safe on Sunday afternoon, authorities said.
The boy returned home on his own accord, according to an LAPD watch commander.
He lived in the 13700 block of Gain Street (map) and had been last seen riding his bicycle northbound on Bartee Avenue away from the residence around 12:45 p.m. Saturday, according to an earlier news release from the Los Angeles Police Department.
The teen was possibly suicidal due to a medical condition, the release stated, adding that he left home after stabbing his hand with a knife.
Police originally reported the boy’s age was 14, but later said he was 17.
