A missing teenager who disappeared on Halloween night in Los Angeles has been found safe on Saturday, his mother confirmed in a Facebook post.

The teenager, Andrew Jason Wright, 18, disappeared on Oct. 31 near the 1700 block of Federal Avenue around 6 p.m., according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Andrew’s mother, Anna Wright, says Andrew left home “in an unhealthy state of mind and struggled with suicidal thoughts, sleeping on the street in downtown LA for 5 days. He decided to come home today on his own volition and going forward we will be helping him in any way we can so that he may get to a place where he can be happier.”

Anna’s statement continues, saying:
“We are SO grateful for how you have all surrounded us with love and support at this time, it shows the goodness in this world. Andrew saw some of the missing flyers and knows now that he is cared about by so many people. Thank you for everything. You all helped bring Andrew home.”

Wright is a senior at Palisades Charter High School.
