    Family: Missing 11-Year-Old Conn. Boy Found

    The family of an 11-year-old Hartford boy who disappeared around 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday said he has been found and is safe.

    Jeremy White's family said he left for a bike ride with friends on Wednesday and those friends said they watched Jeremy get into a van that took off. Police searched for Jeremy for hours and issued a Silver Alert on Thursday morning.

    The search now appears to be over.

    A family friend found Jeremy near Franklin Avenue and he is going to hospital to be evaluated after he said he did not remember anything.

    Police are responding to the boy's home.

    "There was mention that it was a minivan that took him and that's all they keep mentioning, over and over, so we're sticking by that," Margarita Valdez, Jeremy's aunt, said early Thursday morning. "And then they found his bike in Highland Park and that's the only information we have about him."

    Police have not confirmed whether or not they have found Jeremy's bike or if they are looking for a specific vehicle.
