    TROUTDALE, Oregon (KPTV) — A teenage boy who hadn’t been seen for almost a week is now back home safe.

The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office asked the public for help after the family of 15-year-old Eh-Kawyaw Htoo reported him missing early Friday morning.

His family told deputies he was last seen in Troutdale around 3 a.m. Saturday.
