Missing Child Alert OVER: RYAN HAS BEEN FOUND! Thank You For Sharing His Photo

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: Ryan Sparks was found around 7:30am Monday morning. Ryan had been known to get up in the middle of the night and wander around. He had never stayed the night at his aunt's house before so his mother thinks that when he woke up, he probably didn't recognize his surroundings.

Ryan was found in a different apartment across the parking lot. The people living in that apartment woke up to find Ryan sleeping on their couch and called police right away.

Ryan and his mother clung to each other in an emotional embrace with his mother telling him, "Mommy's never ever leaving you again."

UPDATE: 4-Year-old Ryan has been found. He was found around 7:30 Monday morning. We'll post more details as we get them. Thank you to all who shared his photo.
