A California teenager who was reported missing three years ago was found this month sleeping outside of a Utah gas station, police said.

Sheriff’s deputies encountered Connerjack Oswalt, 19, in the Park City area on April 9 after someone called in a report of a man sleeping outside a gas station, said Lt. Andrew Wright of the Summitt County Sheriff’s Office.

When deputies arrived, they scanned Oswalt’s fingerprints and found an arrest warrant for someone with a similar name that was issued out of Nevada in February, Wright said, and more research led them to a missing person’s poster for Oswalt in the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children database.

Deputies contacted authorities in Clearlake, California, where Oswalt was reported missing, and tracked down Oswalt’s mother in Idaho Falls, Wright said, leading to their reunification in Utah.
