From the Lufkin Police Department
LUFKIN, TX (News Release) - The Lufkin Police Department has received new information in the search for a teenage boy who apparently left home without permission last week.
Multiple sources have confirmed that they have been in contact with 15-year-old Ty Conway and that he has indicated to them that he is safe.
"We are still attempting to locate him, but we do not believe that he is in any type of danger," Public Relations Specialist Jessica Pebsworth said. "It appears that he ran away from home."
Conway's father reported him missing last Thursday, saying he last saw his son earlier in the day at their home at 608 Morrow Avenue in Lufkin. Conway's father said he could not find his son after waking up from a nap and believes he may have left around 7 that evening.
He said Conway may have been wearing a black and orange "Tarver Logging" baseball cap. Conway is described as having shoulder-length, dirty-blonde hair, blue eyes, 5'4 and weighs 120 pounds. Conway has friends and family in the Pollok area, Hanks Creek area and Baytown, according to his father. He also has a tattoo of three dots in the form of a triangle on his left hand.
