Missing Teen Found Safe

A WLOX viewer helped police find a missing Biloxi teenager.

Police say 16-year old Matthew Desporte was found in Illinois yesterday, exactly a month after he left home. Police were worried about possible foul play, because Matthew had been missing for so long.

Police say a viewer saw our story on Matthew last week, and told officers the teen may be in Illinois. That's where police tracked him down. Matthew had been staying with a friend there.
