GREENSBORO, N.C. — Officials said a 10-year-old boy who went missing Sunday morning in Greensboro is safe after being found at a home near his house Monday afternoon.
Greensboro Police said Isiah Amari Terry, who goes by “Amari,” was located around 3:20 p.m. near his residence on Guest Street. Neighbors said they saw the child sitting outside in the rain, offered him a sandwich and called police.
Officials said he went missing after an argument with his mother around 9:30 a.m. Sunday. His mother said she immediately went outside to look for him and he was nowhere to be seen.
Authorities said Amari was dressed for church and wearing a long sleeve cream-colored shirt, brown vest, brown pants and black dress shoes.
His mother said Amari has a disability and cannot use his right arm and tends to move slowly. She said he usually plays in the park just across the street and never wanders into the nearby woods.
The Greensboro Police Department organized a search of the area where Amari was last seen.
Volunteers from the community participated and met officers and Greensboro Fire personnel at Rankin Elementary School (1501 Spry Street) at the corner of Spry Street and Summit Avenue.
Police said they are still working to determine where the child was for the last day and a half.
