Matthew was spotted by a passerby and when approached, he identified himself. The passerby called the police to report she was with him and he was safe.

At approximately 8 p.m. Aug. 2, the Westfield Police Department began Matthew Baker, 15, who was last seen at approximately 2:40 p.m. when he was dropped off at football practice.

Westfield Police officers began working with Matthew’s family in locating him and considered him to be a juvenile runaway.
