A missing 13-year-old boy was found safe after the group he was shed hunting with Sunday afternoon reported him missing.
The boy, who was not named by authorities, was reported missing mid-afternoon Sunday, said Union County Sheriff’s Capt. Craig Ward. Union County Search and Rescue was fully activated with a command center set up on Bowman Loop north of Elgin and a communications team back at the sheriff’s office.
Ward said Sunday while the boy was missing that the boy did not have a known medical condition but was not equipped to be out overnight.
The boy was found around 6:10 p.m., several hours after law enforcement had been called.
