Missing Clackamas Co. 12-year-old found safe

Posted: Updated:
CLACKAMAS COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that a missing 12-year-old has been found safe.

Deputies have been looking for Malic Martinez since late Tuesday.

According to sheriff’s office, the boy is not being cooperative with deputies and searchers, though, and has been running away from them.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office said Martinez was last seen leaving his home in the 58000 block of Highway 26 around 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Family members first reported the boy missing soon after he left, but deputies told his family to wait for a short time to see if he would come home on his own. Search and rescue teams were later dispatched after Martinez failed to return later Tuesday night.

“He's had a couple of bad days, it sounds like. He's had some issues where he is a little despondent over a past relationship and things like that so that obviously causes us a little more concern,” Sgt. Sean Collinson told FOX 12 Wednesday. “So we really don't know what's going through his mind right now.”

Martinez’s family believes he may have been attempting to go to see his father in Sandy.
