San Angelo – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) on Saturday recovered a 16-year-old boy reported missing out of San Angelo after a traffic stop.  


At approximately  10 p.m. Saturday, a DPS Trooper initiated a traffic stop on a 2016 Chevrolet pickup on U.S. 277 for speeding. As the Trooper made contact with the driver and five passengers, all of whom were minors, the Trooper observed an alcoholic beverage in the center console. A subsequent search revealed several more alcoholic beverages throughout the vehicle. 


While issuing citations to all occupants of the vehicle, the Trooper identified the 16-year old male juvenile and confirmed a missing juvenile alert through the San Angelo Police Department.  Once on scene, the juvenile was released to his case worker and all other occupants were issued citations for minor in possession of alcoholic beverage and released.
