Young Teen Boy Watches Pornography on His Smart Phone

Question

My question contains two parts:
I have recently caught my fourteen year-old son watching pornography. He is otherwise a great kid. He is almost never moody and impulsive, he never drinks or uses drugs, he is a great planner, and he does reasonably well at school. In short, his behavior is the opposite of that of a typical boy his age, despite the fact that he has been viewing pornography. What do you think I should do about this?
My second question is that after I have threatened to take away his phone and his computer, he told me he would run away. If he runs, I am reluctant to go looking for him or call the police, as that would give him the impression that I am willing to play cat-and-mouse with him. Nevertheless, I want him to be safe. What do you recommend I do?
