DUNCANSVILLE, Pa. (AP) – Police say a 10-year-old Pennsylvania boy wasn’t missing as his mother feared, but was simply found hiding under his down bed, apparently while playing hide-and-seek.
Blair Township police tell The (Altoona) Mirror that the boy’s mother called for help Friday night when she couldn’t find the boy for an extended time.
Police in the township about 90 miles east of Pittsburgh began summoning a search-and-rescue team early Saturday when the learned the boy had been found – by a sibling, hiding under his own bed.
Officer Benjamin Shanholtz tells the newspaper the boy was found by another sibling, not the brother he had been playing with last week.
Nobody is in any legal trouble as a result of the search.
Police couldn’t immediately be reached for more details Monday.
