A 17-year-old male reported missing on Tuesday has been safely located in Indialantic.
Gunnar Traylor was found walking on the beach near Fifth Avenue in Indialantic around noon on Thursday. He was holding a can of beer.
A passerby saw Traylor on the beach and contacted police. When officers responded and attempted to talk to the teen, Traylor tried to hit the officer and flee.
The officer displayed his taser and ordered Traylor to comply at which time the teen surrendered.
The boy was unharmed and told Palm Bay detectives he was “stressed out about things at school and wanted to be alone.” Traylor is now facing criminal charges involving resisting an officer
