A Miami-Dade family is thankful after the return of a 14-year-old who was last seen Monday.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement officials issued a missing child alert Tuesday for Juan F. Velasquez Jr., who was last seen in the 15500 block of Southwest 147th Court.

Early Wednesday morning, the FDLE said the alert was canceled and Velasquez was found safe. Officials did not release any additional details at this time.

“Please, please don’t do anything wrong,” said the teen's father, Juan Velasquez on Tuesday. “Please don’t hurt yourself and don’t hurt nobody else.”

His father said the last time he saw him was Sunday night before he went to bed. The next day when he tried to wake him up for school, his son was gone.

“I knocked the door two times and ask him to wake up, and he wasn’t there in the bed,” he said.

Family members tell NBC 6 that Velasquez is undergoing medical evaluation at Kendall Regional Medical Center.
