Sacramento sheriff’s deputies say that an 8-year-old boy who ran away Wednesday night has been located.

Christopher Sanchez was considered at risk because he is so young and was presumably on his own. He had last been seen about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at his home in the 8100 block of Power Inn Road.

Christopher had an argument with family members and went to his room. Not long after, he could not be found.

Deputies said about 8:15 a.m. Thursday that he had been found and returned to his family.
