SELLS, Ariz. (AP) — A 4-year-old boy who was reported missing Friday on the Tohono O’odham Nation in southern Arizona was found safe Saturday, tribal police said.

Law enforcement personnel found the boy shortly after noon, the tribal Office of Emergency Management said in a brief statement. “The boy is receiving medical treatment at this time.”

Officials said previously the boy was reported at about 10 a.m. Friday in the San Isidro area of the Schuk Toak District of the reservation west of Tucson.

“Community members should continue to expect a large law enforcement presence and should avoid the area while law enforcement continues its search for the boy,” the earlier statement said.

The boy’s identity was not released and no information was immediately available on circumstances of his disappearance.
