Sheriff: Missing 11-year-old boy found, safe

An 11-year-old boy who had been reported missing from a home in the Sky Harbour subdivision earlier this evening (Wednesday, Dec. 19) was located by authorities at 10:42 p.m. and is safe, Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds said. The boy was a runaway, Deeds said, and spent about 2-1/2 hours running from deputies and others who were helping in the search, the sheriff stated. Because the boy was a repeat runaway and had tried to elude emergency personnel, a judge was called in to read the boy his Miranda rights and he was to spend the rest of the night in juvenile detention, Deeds said.
