A missing 9-year-old from South Sacramento was found safe Thursday afternoon after going missing Wednesday, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department said.

KC “Jimmy” Nguyen’s family said the boy initially went missing from his home on 68th Avenue.

However, at approximately 2 p.m. Thursday, the boy was found near his residence safe.

The sheriff's department said the juvenile tried to run when a local news crew located him walking around the area. He will now be reunited with his family.

The boy was considered at risk because of his age.
