Runaway Teen Found On Train Near Vernon

A 14-year-old boy has been found on a train near Vernon city limits today.

Our Facebook friends alerted us to a report that a boy was spotted near Highway 287 on a train from Wichita Falls. We made calls into the Vernon Police Chief this morning, but they were not immediately returned.

The Vernon Daily Record reports Vernon police arrived on the scene near the highway where three trains were stopped. Police located the boy on the 2nd engine with materials that seemed as if he were running away.

The boy's father was heading to the police department to pick the boy up.
