Police said the 9-year-old ran away from home after his mother said he stayed home from school Friday due to behavior issues. She said she didn’t realize he left the house.
“Just got to figure out on a mental health standpoint, what makes a nine-year-old not want to go home or not want to go to school,” said Arlington police Lt. Chris Cook, “That’s what’s concerning us.”
The boy was last seen Friday afternoon near Williams Elementary, and police said he used to go to school there but had transferred.
