PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WVLT) - A missing Pigeon Forge teen that left his parents a note before running away has been found, the teen’s mother, Samatha Ogle, told WVLT News.

Representatives with the Pigeon Forge Police Department said that Taylor Lee Ogle, 15, did not get off the school bus on Tuesday. He was last seen on March 22 at 2:53 p.m. walking toward the Pigeon Forge Community Center.

Taylor’s parents shared a note to WVLT News that was found after he was discovered missing.

The first line read, “Dear parents, I know I’m a burden for this family. I also know that even so, you all still love me.”

The note later went on to say the teen has been falling behind in life and how he needed to find himself. The teen shared he would be running away to stay with a friend. He warned if his family came looking for him, that he was “prepared to run. I will do whatever it takes.”

The 15-year-old boy left a note for his parents before leaving home.
