Bastrop teen Alexander Housewright was located Thursday morning at a private residence on McCreight Street.

Housewright had been missing since Tuesday when his step-father returned home to their house on Yeldell Road at 3 p.m. to find him missing. His mother had reported that she last saw him at their house on Yeldell Road when she was leaving for work at 7 a.m. that morning.

“We found him, and he's safe and sound,” Morehouse Parish Sheriff's Office Investigator Rose Worley said.

Worley said that Housewright was located between the hours of 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. Thursday, but she could not provide any further details concerning the exact location.
