Missing teen found safe

The teenage boy who ran away from his father at Kapa‘a Middle School on May 8 was located yesterday in Kapa‘a, an official from the Kaua‘i Police Department said yesterday.

Luke Alaipalelei, 14, was located and returned to his father, said Claire Ueno of KPD’s Investigative Services Bureau’s Youth Services Section.

“The juvenile was located and returned to his father,” she said. “At this time I am not at liberty to disclose any more than he was located and returned to the parent. He is fine.”

Kaua‘i police asked for the public’s help in locating Alaipalelei on Wednesday, nine days after he was last seen.
