In a news release, the Sheriff's office announced that County Sheriff's Office deputies were sent off to 10200 block of Pembroke Drive after the boy was reported missing in Union.


The boy was said to be 5 "2" and weighed 90 pounds with dark hair and brown eye color. Details of his outfit were given as it was stated that he was last seen wearing a blue shirt with a dinosaur on orange shoes embellished in front of it.

Timothy Mullis, 15, a resident of Laurel County, was found safe a few hours after he was reported missing. Before he was found, the Laurel County Sheriff's Office announced that anyone with information about his whereabouts should notify them.
