Missing man makes contact with police

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A man who went missing Friday morning has been found, according to Memphis Police Department.

The search for Cedric Richardson, 18, started when he left a car to meet someone Friday morning at Madison Cypress Lakes apartment complex. His girlfriend, who was in the car, said he never returned.

Richardson then called her and told her that he'd been shot. MPD launched a City Watch to try and find Richardson.

Hours later, Richardson contacted police through video to tell them that he was OK and had not been shot. He said he did not want to give up his location because he has active warrants out for his arrest.

Richardson has an arrest warrant for aggravated robbery in Shelby County. It's unclear if anyone faces charges for filing a false report.
