What to do when someone you know goes missing

DICKINSON, Texas (KTRK) -- A 12-year-old dependent on insulin has been reportedly found safe Wednesday after the Galveston County sheriff said he likely ran away from his Dickinson home late Tuesday night.

Connor Simpson went missing after he had been last seen Tuesday walking near the 4900 block of 23rd Street, Texas EquuSearch said. By Wednesday afternoon, the sheriff's office confirmed he had been found safe.

Connor's father apparently told the sheriff's office that his son told his friends at school he was going to run away.

It's unclear where exactly Connor was found.
