A 15-year-old boy missing for more than a month turned himself in to the Southaven police Thursday morning.
Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell said Donald Lee Russell III is now in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Human Services.
Donald was last seen April 9 walking from Southwind Townhomes in the 15000 block of Dismuke Avenue in Jackson County. The boy’s parents didn’t file a missing-person report until May 11, about a month later, Ezell said.
It’s unknown how long the teen will remain in DHS custody. Sheriff’s investigators are following up on the circumstances surrounding his disappearance.
