JONESBORO, AR - A Jonesboro boy missing since 7 o'clock last night has been located safe and sound at the home of a friend.

Clinton Townsley, 10, was reported missing by his parents around 7 p.m. Monday evening after last being seen riding an all-terrain vehicle near the Southridge Fire Department station off of Highway 163.  Authorities learned of the boy's safe recovery around 6 o'clock this morning when the family of the friend he had spent the night with saw a report of the missing boy on Good Morning Region 8 on KAIT.  Apparently, Townsley had failed to inform his family that he was spending the evening with his friend.
