Another chronic runaway?

The NCMEC put up this poster for Michael Ray Howard, a fourteen-year-old boy who disappeared in July. I Googled “Michael Howard missing Oklahoma City” and found this article from 2012, about a boy who had been missing but was found safe. He’s got the same name, disappeared from the same city, the age is right, and the photo bears a striking resemblance to the boy on the NCMEC poster. I’d lay odds that it’s him.

I wonder if he’s a chronic runaway. If he is, he started early.
