On October 10, 2023, at approximately 10:00 PM, the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office received a report of a missing juvenile. The teen was last seen around 11:00 AM in the 4100 block of Scenic Valley Ln., Sugar Land, Fort Bend County, Texas. On October 11, 2023, at approximately 7:00 PM, the teen was located in Houston, Texas and quickly returned home. The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office would like to make the public aware of the potential dangers that missing persons, particularly young adults and teens are susceptible to exploitation and trafficking.

"We would like to thank Chief Troy Finner and the Houston Police Department for working with us to locate and secure the teen, which allowed for his safe return to his family," said Sheriff Fagan.
