Updated 5 p.m.: A missing 14-year-old boy from Rockville has been found safe, his school announced.

Kevin Michael Franklin, an eighth-grader at Takoma Park Middle School, left his family home on foot at about 5:30 p.m. Monday and his family reported him missing to police. He lives on Pitt Place in Rockville.

On Thursday morning, Alicia Deeny, the principal of the school, sent an email to parents notifying that he “is now safe at home with his family.”

“His family and TPMS are ever grateful for the outpouring of support received from members of the Takoma community and beyond,” she wrote. “We appreciate your spreading the word through similar avenues now that we know he is home.”

Montgomery County police confirmed at 11:30 a.m. that he had been found and was unharmed. Police have not yet confirmed additional information about where Franklin was or how he was found.

Deeny told Bethesda Beat Thursday that she and the school were relieved at the news that Franklin was safe. She called him a "bright and sociable young man."

"He’s a kid that we know at Takoma," she said. "He’s part of this community, so there’s a lot of relief among the staff and community that he’s safe."
