9-year-old Tywon Young found safe after reported missing on Halloween

DETROIT (WXYZ) - A young boy who was reported missing after leaving his home to go trick-or-treating with friends, has been found safe.

The family got word this Thursday morning that Tywon Young has been found. 7 Action News is gathering details.

Young left his home in the 2500 block of Calvert to go trick-or-treating with friends on Halloween.

7 Action News spoke with his mother Termina Washington, who was sick with worry.

"I just went to his school, and he's not there," she said on the phone in a shaky voice.  "I know he was last seen with a bunch of neighbor kids at St. Cecilia Church at Burlingame and Livernois."

"He is my only child," she added, choking up.

Washington has been roaming her neighborhood this morning asking neighbors if their kids came home last night and if any of them have seen her son.

Police were told he was in a good physical and mental condition and that he has never been missing before.

Officers checked the area around his home and talked with his friends. They had not seen him.
