Missing Texas 2-Year-Old Found Safe In Kansas

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A 2-year-old Texas boy who had been reported missing in Texas on Thursday is safe after being taken to the Topeka police department.

Topeka Police Lt. Steve Taylor says the boy, Elijah Waggoner, was dropped off at a police station shortly early Friday. He says the boy appeared to be healthy. It was not immediately clear who brought the boy to the station.

Taylor said Elijah was taken without permission from Fort Worth, Texas.

Police are looking for a 16-year-old runaway, Leondray M. Sanders Jr., who was believed to be with the boy before the child was taken to the police station.
