GIRARD, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - The Burke County Sheriff’s Office has located the missing runaway teen as of Tuesday night, according to authorities.

Authorities say Sawyer Johnson was safely located just before 10 p.m., after two days of being missing.

The Burke County Sheriff’s Office says they received an anonymous tip via the 911 center, and found the juvenile in a camper with a 14-year-old, officials say.

The other teen snuck Johnson onto the property, where they live with their elderly grandparents, officials say. The grandparents permitted deputies to look into the camper.

Both juveniles are being interviewed by the criminal investigative division, according to authorities.
