Max Miskin

CUMBERLAND COUNTY, Pa.– This morning, a Cumberland County teen was found safe after he went missing overnight without shoes or a coat.

Max Miskin, 14, was located safely this morning around 12:30 at the Sheetz along the Carlisle Pike.

Previously, police reported that Miskin left his house around 7 p.m. Monday.

To find the boy, police say they use a wide variety of techniques.

“We use old fashioned foot power, people out there, people from the community,” Hampden Police Department Chief Steve Junkin said. “We also used tracking dogs, a State Police Helicopter… It used something called the ‘flir’ for infrared that is able to pick up heat signatures of people.”

“We had a lot of people show up on their own, that dressed warmly. They took their times into the wee hours of the morning here, and went out to do something for their neighbor and someone they didn’t even know,” Junkin continued. “They cared and that means a lot and I want to thank them.”

Miskin has shown no signs of hypothermia, and he is doing just fine after being reunited with his family.
