Texas EquuSearch had just begun their search for a missing 12-year-old boy Sunday when he was found safe. Officials say he ran away.

The boy was last seen around 5pm Friday at the CEP school near Beechnut and Fondren.

According to the Houston Police Department, he was late to school Friday and school personnel told his mother he would be staying after school for detention, but he never made it home.

Texas EquuSearch formed a search party and set up a command center. They weren't searching long when the boy turned up.

There is no word on where he was located.
