BALTIC, S.D. (AP) - A 13-year-old Baltic boy who was missing for nearly a day after apparently running away from home has been found safe.

The Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office says Caleb Schreurs was found at 6:45 a.m. Wednesday.

The boy had last been seen about 8 a.m. Tuesday, after accompanying his sister to a bus stop and then leaving on a bicycle. The bike was found in a bean field, and more than 50 people scoured the area until the search was suspended about 1 a.m. Wednesday. It resumed at daybreak.

Sgt. Mike Walsh says Caleb was found sleeping outside the water treatment plant north of Baltic and returned to his parents. Walsh says authorities believe the boy had run away.
