DECHERD (WATE) - An East Tennessee Endangered Child Alert was canceled Wednesday morning after 14-year-old Christopher Smith from Decherd in Middle Tennessee was found safe.

Officials say the teen was located safely Wednesday morning but provided no other details.

Christopher has Crohn's disease and requires medication.

Christopher had advised his babysitter that he was walking to a local restaurant to use the Internet at 11:00 a.m. on December 31, 2013, but was not seen after that until finding him Wednesday morning.
