A missing teenager in Andover, who prompted tighter security at RHAM High School in Hebron, has been located in Virginia.
Connecticut State Police Spokesperson Lt. Paul Vance confirmed that James Baver, 16, was taken into police custody on Tuesday.
Police searched for Baver, who was reported missing following a fire at his home Monday morning.
Baver's mother was taken to the hospital with minor injuries from the fire.
A Silver Alert was issued for Baver Monday night, and school officials sent a message to parents.
"Police are seeking to question this student regarding a house fire and domestic incident that occurred yesterday in Andover," the alert read. "The state police have stationed a trooper in our building today, and we have increased our normal building security."
On Tuesday, more troopers than usual were assigned to RHAM High School in case Baver, who is a junior, decided to show up to school.
"Police are here in case he comes to school and to make sure everyone is safe," said RHAM's Superintendent Dr. Robert Siminski.
However, Baver did not show up for classes at RHAM High School and had not been seen since Monday morning.
"He seemed like a good kid when I hung with him. Sometimes things bothering him, it seemed. He told me life's not good at some points," student Jake Fritz said. "I was there by his side, but stopped talking to him before high school."
State police were expected to stay at the school until afternoon and evening activities were completed.
However, the Silver Alert was canceled around 6:45 p.m. Tuesday.
Troopers were not at the school Wednesday, but the school continued to follow normal safety practices.
The fire remains under investigation, and it's unclear where the fire started or if it is suspicious in nature.
