UPDATE: CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A missing Cleveland child has been found safe and sound with a friend.

The family of 9-year-old Vahindo Cruz became concerned after he went missing yesterday afternoon.

He apparently had slept over a friend's house and the friend told him he called Cruz's mom and she said it was OK for him to spend the night.

Police never suspected the child's situation was a result of something sinister but did launch an investigation to help bring Cruz home.
