Missing Joplin runaway located

(From the Joplin Police Department)

The Joplin Police Department is grateful to announce that Christian N. Goodwin has been located. He was located, uninjured and in good condition, by the Newton County Sheriff’s Department.

As always, we take runaways seriously. In light of the specific facts and circumstances in this case, and in consideration of the intemperate weather, we deemed it prudent to identify Christian as an endangered missing person.

In this case, the Joplin Fire Department, Redding’s Mill Fire Department and the Joplin Police Department collectively responded to locate Christian. We are also appreciative of the other surrounding agencies that contributed to this successful outcome.

Additionally, we are thankful for the community’s response via social media and those that called in to the special phone lines. In these cases, the information that we receive from the community helps us to better direct our resources and our efforts.

I am so glad they found him safe and unharmed. Am I the only one who is trying to figure out what that is around his forehead in the picture?

It appears to be a braid. The story I heard was they were in a store and he was messing around and stuck it on his head, for a reaction as boys do that sort of thing, and they took a picture. Lol
