HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - A Hancock County teenager missing since Wednesday afternoon has been found safe and sound.

Jeffrey Brown was discovered in the football field restroom about 6:15 Thursday morning. School officials say he was not hurt.

Brown is autistic, and, according to his parents, sometimes wanders off.  But there was real concern the teenager could be been lost in the dense woods surrounding the school.
