A missing 15-year-old Palmer boy last seen Monday at a local high school has been safely found, according to Alaska State Troopers.

AST spokesperson Beth Ipsen says Friday that troopers were informed at about 6 p.m. Thursday that Austin Sult had been reunited with his family.

"We were notified that a Palmer police officer had found Austin," Ipsen said.

Sult had been reported missing by his family after being last seen at the Valley Pathways school, at 1150 N. France Rd., at about 4 p.m. Monday. His mother had been posting missing posters in Palmer Thursday in an effort to locate him.
