Missing USC student found and reunited with family

A USC graduate student who had been missing since Sunday afternoon was found and reunited with his family Friday morning, according to authorities.

Bo John Jones, 22, is at a local hospital, said Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Tony Im. There were no details available on his condition or how he ended up in the hospital.

Jones was last seen around 4:30 p.m. Sunday near downtown Los Angeles, police said.


Jones’ father, James Jones, told KABC-TV that his son had left his wallet, identification and car at his Westlake apartment Sunday. James Jones said he got a notification from a location app on his son’s cellphone that it was at a mobile phone store where someone was trying to “crack into it.”

A woman at the store said she found the phone at a playground in MacArthur Park on Tuesday.
