Diabetic Auburndale teen found

Sixteen-year-old Michael Nathaniel Banks has been located safe after he was reported missing Saturday.

Banks was last seen around noon when he left his apartment at 412 Century Blvd. in Auburndale.

Michael was going to the Ariana Market at the corner of Ariana Blvd. and Old Lake Alfred Road (just down the street from his home). He was riding a girl's maroon mountain bike.

Michael is a Type 1 Diabetic and needs insulin to control his diabetes. Authorities said he had missed at least one insulin injection since leaving his apartment.

Michael and his parents just moved to Auburndale on June 4th and police say he does not know many people nor does he know his way around very well.

Police say the teen was found at a girlfriend's home in Tampa. They are working to find out how he got there.
