AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A missing at-risk teenager was located safe in Civic Center Park on Tuesday afternoon.

A citizen recognized the teen from his picture on the news and called police.

Juan Campos Rocha was last seen around his home near East Colfax Avenue and Galena on Sunday.

The 13-year-old will be reunited with his family.

“One of the things that really helped with this investigation was that … which I think is a lesson for everybody to keep in mind … is that they had current photos available of Juan,” Aurora Police Chief Nick Metz said.

A lot of people were helping with the case. The Aurora Police Department had more than 60 officers looking for the teen — not counting the help from other departments and volunteers.
