BELTON — Sixteen-year-old Ryan Matthew “Bubba” Stoneburner, reported as an endangered runaway Friday, was located over the weekend, Belton police reported.

The teenager called home and asked his parents to pick him up in the Austin area, Belton Police Chief Gene Ellis said.

The teen ran away from his home in the 1000 block of Lindsey Circle; police were told he might harm himself, according to a Belton Police Department news release.

A photo of the teen and a physical description were posted on several social media websites and distributed to local media.

Police don’t usually handle reports of teenage runaways in this way, but police believed he may have been a danger to himself, Ellis said.
