The Findlay teen that went missing last Sunday has been found. 19-year-old Alan Lee Howett was found in Findlay on Friday.
19-year-old Alan Lee Howett went missing from the Tree Line Recovery Center around 8:30 p.m. Sunday. Alan’s father Mark Howett tells us Alan left with what clothes he had but left all his medication behind.
Tree Line’s Pat Hardy said that Tree Line is a voluntary adult recovery program. Federal confidentiality guidelines dictate that she cannot comment on whether a patient leaves.
The Sheriff’s Office received the report early Wednesday and are looking into the missing teen.
The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office website lists Howett as an active inmate. Earlier this summer a Hancock County Judge sentenced Howett to 90 days in jail with 80 suspended for carrying a concealed weapon and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Mark Howett tells us his son was out of the jail on a furlough.
We will have more information when it is available.
