North Middle Student Found Safe

Tensions were high Thursday afternoon when a 13 year old North Middle School student went missing after school. Details were sketchy, but apparently the student may have gotten into a little trouble at school and took to the woods to hide. The Loudon County Sheriff's Department responded in force including requesting a helicopter from Knox County to assist in the search. The missing boy was later spotted by a neighbor near the school and was picked up by a deputy. The boy was safe and unhurt.
