Authorities had been searching for a 13-year-old Wakeman boy after his mother said he disappeared from their home at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
The boy is home, according to reports.
Here is the earlier story:
"I've been out all night driving up and down the streets (looking for him)," Wakeman officer Tim Nelson said. He added he has spoken to different families, and nobody has seen or heard from the boy, David Scott.
Nelson said he faxed a missing child report to the Huron County Sheriff's Office.
Nelson said his mother found a note under his bed on Wednesday night. It read: "I'm sorry for everything I've done. Please forgive me. Love, David."
Nelson said the youth had been in trouble in school and was being home-schooled.
The officer added Scott is on probation with the Huron County Sheriff's Office in connection with misusing a credit card.
Scott was last seen wearing jeans, a camouflage coat, gloves, a hat and tan-colored work boots. He stands about 5 feet 10, weighs about 140 pounds, has blonde hair and blue eyes.
Any one who has seen Scott or knows where he may be located is encouraged to call the Wakeman Police Department at (419) 577-0646 or the Huron County Sheriff's at (419) 663-2828.
