Runaway, 8, found two hours after leaving home

April 30, 2014 

— An 8-year-old boy who ran away from his home Wednesday morning is safe, police said.

The boy left his residence on Hillsdale Drive at about 10 a.m., Turlock police spokeswoman Mayra Lewis said. Police treated the case as a missing juvenile because of the boy’s age.

A resident spotted the boy and called police shortly after noon, Lewis said. “We are terminating the search.”
