Thirteen-year-old Josiah March has been safely relocated after he disappeared from south Natomas on Tuesday afternoon.
March was described as 5-foot-2 and thin in a Sacramento Police Department news release and was considered at-risk. He was last seen around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday on the 800 block of San Juan Road, the same block as Rio Tierra Park, after walking away from a Children's Receiving Home of Sacramento transport van, police spokeswoman Linda Matthew said.
A civilian picked March up and drove him to a fire station in Sacramento at about 8:20 a.m. Wednesday, Matthew said. The journey appears to have been chronicled in a video that has since circulated on social media.
When Sacramento County Sheriff's Office deputies arrived at the fire station, March gave them a false name, Matthew said. They eventually took him back to Children's Receiving Home, one of Sacramento County's largest foster care facilities.
