LUBBOCK,TX- It was a happy ending for the Pena family after their 26 year old son Andrew Pena was found alive Saturday morning.

Pena was last seen in Plainview on April 6. 

His father Angel Pena told us over the phone Saturday, his family is as happy as could be. 

He said he would not tell us where his son was found but that he was working and praying to get his life back in order, and just needed a little time away from it all.

Detective Armando Chavez with the Plainview police department said he got a tip late Friday evening, worked through the night and eventually located Andrew around 7:30 Saturday morning. 

Andrew was told to call his family, and Angel Pena said he was satisfied and believed that the caller was in fact Andrew.

His family and friends conducted several search parties along FM 400, after several anonymous tips said traces of Andrew or his body could be found there.
