A dispatcher told ABC 17 News the teen "returned home."

He was wearing black pajama pants, a multi-colored horizontal striped shirt with tan and red shades, and tan camouflage high-top Adidas tennis shoes.
Wentz is 6'1", 150 pounds, with hazel eyes and short brown hair.
Police thanked the public for its assistance in an email Saturday morning, but offered no other explanation for the cancellation.
