Missing Morehouse student found safe at MARTA station

Posted: Updated:

The parents of a missing Morehouse student are relieved after he was found safe early Thursday morning.

Around 1:30 a.m., Roswell Police Detectives and MARTA police found Benjamin Jones at the Doraville MARTA station.

Police said Jones left voluntarily, and there is no indication of any foul play.

Jones was last heard from May 17, graduation day at Morehouse College.

His father said he talked to his son that Friday and didn't suspect anything out of the ordinary. When his son didn't show up for the graduation, he got worried and then realized through school officials that his son was not on the graduation list.

Jones told police because of his disappointment regarding graduation, he felt that he needed to get away from things.

According to police, Jones parked his vehicle at the North Springs MARTA station and traveled to various locations.

Jones said his phone was broken and lost on May 17 and he believes it was picked up by an unknown subject.

A tip led investigators to find Jones at the Doraville station. He was convinced to go home to his family and police said he will not face any charges.
