A Michigan teenager who had been missing since May was just found safe in Miami — and it all happened after he randomly turned up in a livestream.

The Flint Township Police Department first asked for the public's help finding Troy Coleman in a May 21 Facebook post.

“He was [last] seen leaving his house in Flint Township and possibly boarding an MTA bus. His friends and family have not heard from him and are growing concerned," read the police's message. "He is 6'4'', 180 lbs. with blue eyes and a scar above his left eye.”

Almost two months later, FaZe Lacy and a friend named Clix were doing a livestream on Twitch when an individual in green swim trunks appeared in their program and started talking to them, according to CBS affiliate WNEM. That person turned out to be Troy.
