Authorities with the Harris Co. Sheriff's Office have located 12-year-old Christian Ramos who had been missing since yesterday.

Ramos was last seen leaving his residence at the Villas at Cypresswood Apartments in northwest Harris County at around 6:50pm. Early this morning, an Amber Alert was issued by the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

Later this morning, that alert was canceled, even though the boy hadn't yet been located. It was canceled because officials didn't believe he was in danger, which is one of the criteria for issuing an Amber Alert.

Then just after 7am, Ramos was found safe.

No other details were immediately available.

We'll post any new updates as we get them.
