NEWPORT (WATE) - One of two missing Newport teens has been safely located, but the search continues for the other one.

Micah Lee LaMaster, 14, contacted his parents Monday morning to ask them to come to Knoxville to pick him up. Newport Police Chief Maurice Shults says LaMaster seemed to be in good spirits when he arrived in Newport.

LaMaster left Newport on December 31 with Derek Williams, 17. Police say he may have fled to Kentucky after the two separated.

Williams is 5 feet 5 inches in height and weighs 130 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information on Williams' whereabouts is asked to call the Newport Police Department Central Dispatch at (423) 623-8777.
