Jordan Scales, now 18, was lodged in the Logan County Juvenile Detention Center on a probation violation.

Officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department noted the teen most likely was a runaway soon after he was reported missing.

Around 12:45 p.m. Thursday, he called dispatchers and told them he would be at the department at 8 p.m.

He was located at a family member’s residence at 21872 Evans Drive, West Mansfield, by deputies of the Union County Sheriff’s Office around 7 p.m. and taken into custody.

Police continue to investigate.
