ALOHA, OR (KPTV) -

A developmentally disabled teen has been located after he went missing for two days.

On Saturday afternoon, authorities notified the parents of Shai Jackson that he had been located at Paddy's Restaurant on southwest Yamhill.

Portland police were called out after a patron at the restaurant spotted Jackson.

Police said the teen was not harmed and in good spirits as they released him to his father.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office was asking for the public's help tracking down the developmentally disabled 14-year-old boy.

Jackson left on Thursday from his apartment in Aloha.

Deputies said they had a confirmed sighting of Jackson in the Old Town area of Portland on early Friday morning.

Investigators were concerned for Jackson's safety because he has the mental capacity of a child as young as 7 years old.
