A Navassa teen reported missing last week was found in a wooded area near Leland and charged with damaging property.
Navassa police issued a Silver Alert for 16-year-old Michael Arthur Hook early last week after the teen broke a window and escaped from his parents’ home, Sgt. Scott Perez said.
Officers began a search of the Navassa community before requesting a Silver Alert.
On Tuesday, May 19, officers visited a wooded area in Leland that Hook was known to frequent.
