Deputy Lowry said in a Facebook post: "The Cullinan family have asked that I let you know that Stephen has made contact with the family."
A number of appeals had been issued as part of efforts to trace Stephen's whereabouts.
His family had also conducted a leaflet drop in the capital in a bid to find out any more information.
