The Hays Police Department quickly located a missing person Friday morning.

The person, one of the many Special Olympians visiting Hays for the Special Olympics Kansas tournament, was reported missing at 8 a.m. from a motel in the 2500 block of Vine. His suitcase also was missing.

Officers responded to the report and, within minutes, located the young man at the Walmart parking lot.

“The young man was a little homesick and was missing his family,” HPD Chief Don Scheibler told Hays Post on Friday morning. “The Special Olympian was returned to his team without any further problems. All is well that ends well!”
