Missing SC Teen Found in Asheville Wearing “99%” T-shirt?

15 year old Jonathan Lisi from Greenville County, SC ran away from his home on November 17.   The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office said Jonathan left home without his medication or any money, so his family was very concerned about him.  Last week, Jonathan’s aunt and uncle from Charlotte arrived in Asheville last Tuesday to hand out fliers.  Jonathan likes art and had sympathy for the homeless, so the family took a chance and came to Asheville thinking he might be there.  According to MSNBC, a security officer at City Hall in Asheville got one of the fliers and saw Jonathan hanging out near the Occupy Asheville protest site. The officer called local police and Jonathan’s relatives, which lead to his recovery. Police said Jonathan was wearing a 99% T-shirt and appeared in good shape. After a little discussion, Jonathan decided to return home with his aunt and uncle, asking the officers to relay to the Occupy participants that he loved them but would probably not be back. (Likely ‘occupying’ his own room for a couple of weeks?).    www.wxii12.com/news/29882748/detail.html#ixzz1flbvXhXY

FYI: The National Network for Youth suggests that approximately 1 to 1.3 million young people run away from home each year.  http://faq.acf.hhs.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/311/~/how-many-young-people-run-away-from-home-each-year%3F
