A 15-year-old Greenbrier boy reported missing Monday has been found safe.

The Faulkner County Rescue Squad and sheriff’s office searched a five-mile stretch for the boy Monday evening but were unsuccessful in their search.

Authorities searched the creek from the Springfield bridge in Bono at the Faulkner-Conway County line to Shaw Bridge Road in Wooster.

The Greenbrier Police Department announced Tuesday afternoon that Coin James (CJ) Crowder had been found safe.

"We want to thank everyone for their assistance," Greenbrier authorities said in a Facebook post shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday. "CJ Crowder has been found and is safe."
