Missing 14-year-old Kristofer "Kris" Hlubik of Ceres turned up at a police station in northern Louisiana Wednesday morning.

"He's fine, he's healthy," family friend told the Courier before noon on Wednesday.

Michele Hlubik (pronounced Lubik) said her son left their Ceres home on Nov. 27 with only his cell phone and leaving a note saying that he was leaving and wouldn't be back. The family confirmed that Kris walked into a police station in Lincoln Parish to report to authorities. It's believed that he had left home with someone he met on the internet.

"We don't know what happened," said the friend.

Kris attended Mae Hensley Junior High School last year but was recently being home schooled through a private Christian academy. He also was a member of Ceres Boy Scout Troop 9.

The family had scheduled a candlelight vigil at 6 p.m. Sunday at Grace Community Christian Church to draw awareness to Kris' disappearance. The event is canceled.
