Buffalo police found a 9-year-old boy who had been reported missing since Friday evening this afternoon, shortly after police put out a plea to the public to help find him.

The boy was located at a friend’s house on E. Ferry Street, police said.

Police say the boy disappeared from his home on Glenwood Avenue sometime after 5:30 p.m., when his father last saw him.

Investigators believe he and another boy ended up at the Tops Friendly Markets at Jefferson Avenue and East Utica Street three hours later, but they had no further information about his whereabouts.
