The Carson City Sheriff's Office says they have found 17-year-old Sean Ascuaga after being reported missing Monday evening near Chimney Beach in Lake Tahoe.

They say he is fine after being found Tuesday morning near Marlette Dam on the other side of Highway 28, about a mile from where Sean was last seen and called authorities. 

Authorities say alcohol was involved and played a factor in his disappearance. 

"He called one time at 7 o' clock and he was saying that he shattered his phone and he fell and we were trying to find him and we were asking him if he was on the road or not and he said he could see the road but he didn't have his glasses on and he can't see very well," says friend Stormy Hall. 

Sean is the grandson of former Nugget Casino owner John Ascuaga.
