Wake Forest, N.C. — Police said early Friday that a 12-year-old Wake Forest boy who had disappeared after a Thursday night recital had been found.
The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons issued a Silver Alert for Chris Adrian Collins, who suffers from attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, saying authorities believed he could be endangered.
Wake Forest police said he walked away from a recital being held at the Wake Forest Renaissance Center, at 400 S. Brooks St., at about 8:30 p.m.
The Wake Forest Fire Department, Wake County Sheriff’s Office, State Highway Patrol and Wake County Emergency Management assisted in the search on the ground, while a Highway Patrol helicopter scanned the area from above.
About four hours later, police said the boy had been found, and the Silver Alert was canceled.
