KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany — An American teenager missing in Germany was found alive and well Tuesday and is “safely back in parental custody,” according to a spokeswoman for the U.S. Army garrison in Ansbach, from which he disappeared more than a week ago.

Earlier postings on the garrison’s Facebook page indicated the teen, 15-year-old D’Andre Wilson, may have run away from home. He had been missing since June 9.

Few details of Wilson’s reappearance were available Tuesday afternoon.

“He returned apparently on his own,” Connie Summers, a spokeswoman for the garrison, said. “He is in parental custody. That’s all I can tell you. That’s all we would want to release.”

The garrison made multiple posts on Facebook pleading with Wilson to contact Army officials or return to base. In a post on Facebook announcing Wilson’s return, the garrison thanked the community and organizations for their help in what was a growing search effort.
