Runaway from Dinuba foster home found in Orange Cove

The Fresno BeeDecember 6, 2013 

The 15-year-old who ran away from a Dinuba foster home earlier this week was found Friday afternoon in Orange Cove, Dinuba police said.

James Felix was found in good health, hiding in the backyard of what he said was his friend's home around 2:40 p.m., police said.

Felix told police that he ran away because he thought Fresno County Social Services was going to separate him from his younger siblings, who ran away with him.

His siblings, Xavier Felix, 8, and Jacob Felix, 10, were found in good health Thursday at an Orange Cove home.
