The teen ran away after he and his dad got into an argument. Police said the father kicked Aage out of the car. He had not been seen until Tuesday when he was found sleeping in a hotel lobby bathroom.

Police said Aage has run away before for long stretches. They add that he is not in any trouble but would like him to come forward to make sure that he is okay.
