A 15-year-old boy reported missing from a youth home in Moncton has been found safe and sound.

Police say James ‘Jamie’ Hannah left the residence of his own accord late in the evening on July 21 but he failed to return to the home.

They released a statement yesterday, asking for the public’s assistance in finding Hannah after their own efforts to locate him were unsuccessful.

Today police released a second statement saying Hannah had been found safe.
