CHASE, B.C. — Missing Chase boy, Brooklyn has been located safe and sound. 

After a 6 hour search Kamloops Search and Rescue Volunteer Manager Alan Hobler confirmed the boy had been located shortly before 7 a.m. 

"It turns out that he went to a friend's house and slept over at his friend's house and didn't tell anybody," Hobler said. "Happy outcome, I'm sure his parents are a little miffed at him but aside from that I think everybody is very relieved."

RCMP had called in search crews early this morning, June 17, to look for nine-year-old Brooklyn when he did not return home last night. 

Hobler said Brooklyn had left his home around 3 p.m. yesterday on his bicycle. His parents realized he was missing when he did not return home by 9 p.m.
