WARNER ROBINS, Ga. -- Thursday morning, Warner Robins Police Chief Brett Evans said searchers had found 10-year-old Kit Colburn, the 10-year-old boy who disappeared Tuesday afternoon.
Evans says Colburn was found in some bushes, just a couple blocks from the search site.
Since Colburn was first reported missing, the Foodmax parking lot on Russell Parkway has served as the headquarters for hundreds of police, fire department personnel, emergency rescue workers and volunteers.
Warner Robins Mayor Chuck Shaheen said the Russell Elementary student is alive and unharmed, and that he was taken to the Warner Robins Police Department, where he and his father began talking with officers from the department's juvenile division.
A preliminary check by medical personnel showed the boy was in good health. Evans thanked the community for helping with the search for the boy.
Colburn was last seen at around 8:45 a.m. Tuesday. Police said he walked away from school when a teacher sent him to the administrative offices in a separate building.
