Sheriff reports missing teenagers found

Two area teenagers who had been reported missing last month have been located and are safe.

The Hunt County Sheriff’s Office reported today that Brian Cox and Michael Pina had been found:

“On January 22, 2020 the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office sent out a press release asking for the public’s assistance to locate Brian Cox and Michael Pina who had voluntarily walked away from the Thompson Residential Treatment Center located in the 1900 block of FM 1564 East.

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services notified the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office on February 10, 2020 that both subjects had been located and to remove them as missing persons, no other details were provided.

“I am thankful that these two young men have been located safe and I want to thank all of our media partners for getting the word out so quickly,” said Sheriff Randy Meeks.
