River Edge police: Missing boy found safe

River Edge police say a missing 11-year-old boy has been found safe.

Police had initially been concerned that the boy could have been the victim of a possible abduction.

Investigators say the child had left school this morning to go back home to get his cell phone, but never returned to school.

This afternoon police report the boy had been found, but perhaps has some "explaining" to do.
