Muskogee Teen Found in Michigan

Austin Powell, a missing 16-year-old from Muskogee since March 15, was found in Bad Axe, Michigan on Tuesday with his father James Powell.

James Powell, 48, was arrested in Michigan on complaints of kidnapping and is being held on $250,000 bond.

The Muskogee County Sheriff's Office received a tip from a foster care companion of Austin Powell, who saw on Facebook that he may be headed to Mich.

The MCSO made some calls, eventually getting in touch with police in Bad Axe, who found Austin and James Powell in the home of Powell's father's sister.

Austin was reportedly indoors playing video games, and is in good health.
