Police: Missing boy ran away after getting a bad haircut

HAYWARD, California -- Police rushed to find a boy who was reported missing on Tuesday in Hayward.

To their surprise, they found the boy rather quickly.

Police posted a picture on Facebook of Officer Tran stepping in to give the boy a clean new cut.
