On July 28th Faulkner County Dispatch received a call in reference to a runaway juvenile. Once deputies made contact with the complainant, she advised she went into the juvenile's room around 8:00 a.m., and found a note on the bed. The complainant also stated the juvenile had taken some of her belongings along with the complainant's car and another family member's cell phone.
