The Princeton teen who went missing earlier this week has been found safe - in Florida. 18 year old Richard Deffendall failed to show up for school Tuesday at Princeton Community High School. As investigators began to search for his whereabouts - bits and pieces of information showed where he had been. He reportedly bought a part for his truck along the way, and cell tracing had spotted his phone in Georgia and Florida. The Gibson County Sheriff's Office says Wednesday afternoon his truck broke down near Vero Beach Florida, and he eventually found a police officer there, saying that he didn't have any money, his phone wasn't working, and he needed to go home. He's reportedly unharmed, and his parents are going to pick him up.
