An 18-year-old Easton resident sent Easton police and fire officials on a missing person search early Saturday morning

Police Chief Allen Krajcik said the person, who was eventually found in the Immaculate Conception Cemetery on Canton Street, was at a house party on Pond Street, "apparently intoxicated" before he went missing.

Family and friends searched for him before calling police at 7 a.m., Krajcik said.

Canine teams were called in and the Norton Fire Dept. dive team was also called because of the possibility that the youth had fallen into Shovel Shop Pond.

At 9 a.m., a call from a Canton Street resident directed the search team in his direction.

"Police received a call from a homeowner on Canton Street (about a mile from Pond Street) reporting that a person had broken into his home during the night coming in through an unlocked sliding door and had fallen asleep in an upstairs bedroom," Krajcik said.  "This person was confronted by the homeowner and ran out of the house into Canton Street cemetery."

The intruder turned out to be the missing 18-year-old, and he was located by Police Officer Adam Kwan shortly after.

He was checked out by the Easton Fire Department and released to his parents, Krajcik said.

"The incident is being investigated by Sgt. James McAvoy and the subject may face criminal charges," he said.

Why don't they give the name of this adult who broke into a house?

What is his name?? The parents should pay back any money spent on the search

There is a missing piece here... Who provided him with alcohol in the first place? Will they face charges? Who is responsible for the cost of the search?

He should pay back money spent on the search, not his parents. He is an adult
