A 15-year-old reported missing in Searcy County has been found.
A social media post from the Searcy County Sheriff’s Office says only that Michael Cowan has been located. No other details were provided.
Earlier this month, law enforcement in Searcy County asked for the public’s help in locating the missing teen who at that point had not been seen in over two weeks.
Searcy County Sheriff Kenny Cassell said Cowan went missing Feb. 20 from his home in the Mt. Hershey Road area in northwest Searcy County.
Cassell said the boy’s mother reported her son went to bed the night of the 19th, but when she awoke the next morning, he was gone. She thought he had gone outside to do his chores, because the back door was open. She then discovered a note from her son saying he was leaving but would come back. The note also said, “Don’t call the cops, I’ll just go deeper in the woods where the dogs won’t find me.”
