UPDATE: Captain Sizemore with the Fayette County Sheriff's Department confirmed the missing teenager was located in Pulaski, Virginia Saturday night.

 

The Fayette County Sheriff's Office and the National Park Service are searching for a 16-year-old boy missing from the Prince area Saturday night.

Early Saturday morning The Fayette County 911 Center notified the Sheriff's Office that a call had come in that a juvenile was missing from the Prince area.

The Sheriff's Office discovered that a missing 16-year-old boy named Zebulon McNeill had been missing from his camp site on Army Camp Road in Prince.

McNeill and his parents are from Durham, North Carolina and have been camping in the area for the passed couple of weeks.

His parents reported he was last seen around 11:00pm Friday night before they went to bed.

Bloodhound handlers began assisting in the search and believe that the boy may have been picked up by vehicle instead of leaving on foot. Rangers with the National Park Service were also assisting and began searching downstream. Whitewater rafting guides along the New River have also been notified to look for this missing teenager.

Investigators are pursuing the possibility that this teen may have contacted his friends and made arrangements to be brought back to Durham, NC.

McNeill has been described as a white male, approximately 5' 7" tall and weighing about 100 pounds. He has short hair dyed orange and has a scar above his left eye.

Anyone one with information is asked to contact the Fayette County 911 Center at 304-255-3590 or Crime Stoppers at 304-255-7867.
