Authorities found Kristian Perez, 17, at a home in Orofino shortly after midnight Tuesday, the Orofino Police Department said on its Facebook page later that morning.
Perez was arrested and charged with being a runaway. The owner of the home, 26-year-old Tyson Imel, may be charged for helping Perez, police said.
Perez had vanished Saturday evening after a prom at Orofino High School. His disappearance drew statewide attention after authorities said his broken cellphone, his tuxedo jacket and one shoe were found near a relative’s vehicle.
Orofino police had secured a warrant to examine Perez’s phone records for clues, and Lewiston police followed up on a possible sighting that turned out to be false.
Never miss a local story.
Perez was in good health when found, police said Tuesday. Imel’s connection to Perez wasn’t immediately clear.
