Bradenton teen with medical disorder found safe after not returning home from school

- A 15-year-old, who suffers from a medical disorder, did not return home from school on Wednesday, deputies say, but was found safe by Thursday morning.

Rovan Buetello was dropped off for school at Southeast High School along 37th Avenue East in Bradenton, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies did not say what type of medical disorder Rovan has, but said he does take medication. His mother told deputies he was supposed to ride the bus home after school, but didn’t return home. Deputies were searching for him and said they found him safe late Thursday morning. They did not disclose the location.

There is no word whether deputies have contacted the school for more information, such as when they last saw him on school property.
