A southeast Missouri teen-ager missing for nearly a week has been found, safe and unharmed.  He has been returned home.

St. Francois County authorities say that 16-year-old Tyler Chipman of Bonne Terre was found near Springfield, Illiinois where his family used to live. Chipman had been reported missing from his home since Tuesday, after a family argument. Tyler suffers from an unspecified medical condition that requires medication, which he didn’t take with him.
