A teenager from the Saratoga County town of Halfmoon has been found safe in Florida two weeks after he went missing.

The Saratogian newspaper reported Wednesday 15-year old Henry Ytterberg was found in Orlando by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

The teenager went missing on February 11th after riding his bike away from home. After Ytterberg was reported missing he was recorded by surveillance video at a Watervliet gas station, a Latham supermarket, and an Albany bus station.

Police believe he boarded a bus to New York City before traveling to Florida.

Officials had said the teen had spoken about wanting to visit the Statute of Liberty and Walt Disney World.
