LEAKE COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Leake County mother is relieved after the search for her 16-year-old son has come to a safe end Wednesday afternoon.

Lucy Hernandez says her son, Danny Franklin Arnold, Jr., was last seen at their Maryville home Monday around 9 a.m. She explained her son may have been picked up by a friend, but was worried that the teen may have been in danger. The family had no contact with Arnold for nearly three days until he was located Wednesday afternoon.

"Please help find my son," Hernandez said Wednesday morning. "I need my son home. Any information will help. He could be in danger."

According to the Leake County Sheriff's Office, a missing person report was filed for Arnold. Deputies stated in a press release that it is believed the teen "left of his own free will" following an argument with his mother.

Details as to where Arnold was discovered were not released. Hernandez simply says her son was found safe.
