Mom hands missing boy over to the police

PHILIPSBURG–Twelve-year-old Joseph Prince, who acting police spokesperson Inspector Rensley Henson said “reportedly” went missing from his foster home earlier this month, was returned to the Juvenile Detective Department at police headquarters in Philipsburg around 10:00am Monday.

Prince was spotted several times in public with his mother, who returned her son “without incident.”

After being returned, Prince was handed back over to the Court of Guardianship, “who will continue to provide him with the necessary care and support.” Henson said the investigation in this case is still ongoing.
