DETROIT (WXYZ) — Detroit police have located Christopher Keith, 33, and his 4-year-old son Jaylan Rose who were reported missing by Keith's grandmother who lives in the same home.

The grandmother reported that she and her grandson had an argument on Wednesday, May 12, and he left the home with his son and didn't return for several days, which is unusual. Once Keith did come back to the home on Sunday, May 22, the grandmother stated that she still did not see her grandson, 4-year-old Jaylen.

Keith drives a burgundy, 2019 Ford Escape. On Sunday, the grandmother said he stopped by their home in the 4500 block of Sheridan but did not get out of the vehicle. She was unsure if the child was in the vehicle at the time.

Keith and his son were safely located by police Sunday afternoon. No further details were immediately released.
