— A Raleigh teen who had been missing since Monday morning has been found safe, police said.

Police haven't released more details about what happened to James Doeffinger Jr., 16, who had last been seen leaving his Marshlane Way house to take a walk.

Police said earlier that Doeffinger, who is homeschooled, took a walk every morning, and it was unlike him not to return home.

Family and friends gathered at Crossroads Fellowship Church on Millbrook Road Tuesday morning to search for him.
