RENO, NV - Washoe County sheriff's deputies say a Sun Valley boy who'd been missing since early Friday afternoon has been found safe.

Spokesman Bob Harmon says Austin Schnobrich was missing about three and a half hours after being seen in the area of Slope Drive south of Gepford Parkway, near his home. After an intensive search, deputies say he may have simply wandered off, but is now home and unhurt.

A search command post was set up at Lois Allen Elementary School.
