Missing 16-Year-Old From Long Beach Found on East Coast

Police say they do not believe any foul play was involved in the boy's disappearance.

A 16-year-old boy with a heart condition who went missing earlier this week in Long Beach has been located on the East Coast, police said on Friday.

Amos Walker Marshall had last been seen by a family member about 7 a.m. Tuesday in the 7800 block of Tula Street when he left for school, according to the Long Beach Police Department.

The boy did not attend school that day and it was believed he went to Anaheim "to meet up with an adult female friend that lives in area of the 100 block of South Laxore Street," according to a police statement that said the teenager had been selling some of his belongings prior to going missing.

He was last seen driving a 2013 burgundy four-door Ford Fusion that was found Wednesday in a parking structure at Los Angeles International Airport.

Police said this afternoon that he has been located on the East Coast, but they released no additional details, including the city where Amos was found.

A police spokeswoman said investigators do not believe any foul play was involved in the boy's disappearance.
