TRYON, NC (FOX Carolina) -

The Tryon Police Department said Tuesday that a missing teenager had been located.

Braden Michael Scarborough, 16, went missing on December 5. He had been last seen wearing a neon green and black jacket, black Adidas athletic pants and white/red Adidas Stan Smith shoes. 

Braden's older brother said both of his parents were literally worried sick.

"He has been getting nose bleeds recently from stress and massive headaches," Taylor Scarborough said. "They didn't sleep last night at all. Like at all last night, just stayed out crying. And my mom has passed out twice."

The family said they believe Braden crawled out his bedroom window and then crossed over state lines, ending up in the Taylors area of Greenville County.

Police said Braden recently had surgery and needs medication and follow-up care. 

On Tuesday, Tryon police stated that Braden had been found and was safe. The police department thanked the Greenville County Sheriff's Office and the Greenville Police Department for their assistance in the child's safe return.
