COLUMBIA — Columbia Police have located Clayton McKenzie, 17, who went missing in east Columbia on Tuesday morning. An email message to media said he had been located near Ponderosa Street and South Cowan Road.
A Boone County Sheriff's Deputy found McKenzie walking in the area after joint communications received a call from someone who said they'd seen the teenager.
McKenzie was with his mother who had an appointment near Berrywood Drive and Keene Street Tuesday morning, but when she returned to her car, McKenzie was gone, according to an earlier news release from Columbia police.
McKenzie is 5 feet 10 inches and 160 pounds with short brown hair and brown eyes. He was wearing blue jeans, a checked shirt, Converse shoes, a gray hooded sweatshirt and possibly glasses when he went missing.
He has a disability that requires he take regular medications, so there is concern for his safety, the release said.
Anyone with information should contact police or call 911.
