The Scott County Sheriff's Department says a missing teenager from Sikeston has been found.

A deputy says Arnold Roderick Celestina (AJ), 15, had not been seen since 8 p.m. Wednesday.

According to a deputy, a Heartland News viewer saw the broadcast about the missing teen and called the sheriff's department with a tip.  He was found safe.

The boy was being reunited with his mother.

According to the sheriff's department, Celestina is considered a runaway, but they were concerned about his welfare since he had been missing for two days and asked Heartland News to release information about him.

Deputies questioned his friends but say they have not provided any helpful information.
