A mentally challenged boy who was reported missing Friday in Homewood has been found unharmed.

The 10-year-old boy was last seen getting off a school bus around 4:30 p.m. near the intersection of Kelly Street and Murtland Avenue, about a block from his home, Pittsburgh police Sgt. Michael Pilyih said.

Neighbors said they saw him walk in the opposite direction from home toward Frankstown Avenue. The boy was found shortly before 9 p.m. in a small park on Frankstown Avenue, about two blocks from his home, Pilyih said.
