since early Monday morning, was found alive and safe in Mississippi, police said today.
It is not clear how he got there, where he was staying or what he had been doing over the last few days. Police said his parents are going to meet him there.
No one answered the phone at the Jabusch residence this evening.
The disappearance of the 18-year-old sparked a massive manhunt, community members posted flyers around town, and a Facebook page was created to urge people to share Jabusch' pictures in hopes that someone recognizes him.
Yorktown police Lt. Kevin Soravilla said the department had been receiving numerous phone calls from concerned residents looking out for the teen.
"We took this very seriously," Soravilla said, referring to detectives speaking to the teen's acquaintances and checking out the places he would frequently visit. Police dogs were also used in the search. "I'm glad it ended the way it did."
Police said the department picked up signals from Jabusch's phone and when they called his number, he answered. Yorktown detectives then called the local sheriff's department in Carrollton County, Mississippi, who picked up the teen.
Jabusch, a 2011 graduate, was attending Westchester Community College in the fall of 2011, but had taken this semester off to pursue a career with the Army.
He had been meeting with a recruiter in Peekskill, hoping to become a Ranger. But he recently found out that the wait time for an assignment might be longer and that was disappointing to him, his mother Kathleen Jabusch said.
His parents found a note Monday morning from their son saying he was not coming back. The note did not provide any reason why or an indication he was going to hurt himself.
Police said the teen had left home one other time, two years ago, but he returned the following day.
