Update: 9-year-old runaway located after missing overnight

A 9-year-old boy who ran away from his Midtown home after a fight with his father Sunday afternoon has been located. Police said he "spent the night at the home of a close family friend, who was unaware that police were called and looking for him."

The boy left his family's home in the 15000 block of North Craycroft Road between 2 and 2:30 p.m., a police spokeswoman said.

His father called police around 7:44 p.m. after trying to find the boy on his own, said TPD Sgt. Maria Hawke. Police searched for the runaway overnight but did not locate him, she said, and he did not attend school on Monday morning.

At 11:30 a.m. Monday, Hawke announced that the boy had been located.

"He spent the night at the home of a close family friend, who was unaware that police were called and looking for him," she said.
