MESA, Ariz. -- An endangered runaway teenager who had been missing for several days has been found safe.

The Mesa Police Department had asked for the public’s help locating Zachary Daniel Moore, 16. He was last seen just before 9 a.m. Thursday at Westwood High School, which is located at 945 W. Eighth St.

On Thursday he sent a text to the person who reported him missing stating that he was "done" and wanted to harm himself. Moore is thought to have traveled to the area of Country Club and Brown Road where he got rid of his cellphone.

On Monday morning, police said the teen is back at home. They did not provide any further information.
