LAKE TAPPS, Wash. — Missing teen Josiah Hokanson has been found. A family representative said Josiah was found with family in Portland, Oregon.

The 16-year-old hadn’t been seen since Tuesday when he left Aviation High School in Tukwila and hopped on a bus to head home.

Josiah’s father told Q13 News Thursday, his son has Asperger syndrome and is very trusting of strangers. He also said up until his son’s disappearance there was nothing out of the ordinary.

In a tweet, the Tukwila police thanked everyone who assisted with locating Josiah.
