Missing Davie Teen Found Safe

DAVIE (CBS4) – A Davie teen who vanished while mowing the grass on Sunday has been found safe and sound.

The family of fourteen year old Nick Barnes said he was found in Plantation after someone spotted his picture in the news.

Barnes lives with his aunt and uncle. They said Sunday afternoon between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. he was mowing the yard in front of their home in the 15100 block of Bristol Lane when he disappeared.

“He cut the front of the grass and did not finish the back of the grass, so he was half way through,” said family friend Jason Bossman with the Sawgrass Community Church. “He did leave the lawn mower and weed eater in the garage, and the garage was left open and he was no where to be found afterward.”

Barnes’ aunt and uncle told police he left his cell phone, wallet and keys behind.  They didn’t believe he’d run away or had gone to see his parents, so they called the police.

“He’s a good student, he’s got good grades, there’s nothing out of the ordinary to make him runway or anything,” said Bossman.

The police K9 was brought out and but it could only track Barnes’ scent to the end of the driveway.

    Unbelievable that this young boy went missing from his own yard! I will certainly keep my eyes open and hopefully so does everyone in the community. His poor family must be worried sick. If I were them I would pressure the police dept to move fast and ask for volunteers to help search for him. I would gladly assist. My prayers are with Nick and his family. May he be found safe & be reunited with his loved ones where he belongs!
