Missing Devils Lake teen found in North Carolina

A missing Devils Lake High School student has been found with relatives in Asheville, N.C., according to Devils Lake police on Thursday.

The last time anyone in the Devils Lake area reported seeing Jonathan Linn, 16, was Aug. 10. He was walking along U.S. Highway 2 east of the city.

Police in the Asheville area picked him recently after he was seen walking along a freeway there, Devils Lake police Det. Sue Schwab said. The officers who picked him up didn't realize he was a missing juvenile until they checked his identity, she said.

He had been staying with Asheville relatives after apparently running away, she said.

Arrangements are being made to send him back to his family, she said.
