The detective working with the family received word that Konkler had contacted his mother earlier in the week and has since returned home.
It wasn't immediately clear where he was or how he returned to Woodbury, according to Michelle Okada, Public Safety spokeswoman.
Officials were concerned that Konkler, who has autism and also went missing this spring but later returned home, “may get himself into potentially dangerous situations.”
He made contact with his family later in July, the Pioneer Press reported, and family members didn’t believe he was in danger.
Konkler on July 10 walked away from his home in Woodbury’s Eagle Valley neighborhood and hadn’t returned until this week.
