POMONA (CBS) — A 9-year-old Pomona boy who disappeared Friday afternoon was reunited with his mother Saturday night.
Luis Armando Gamboa left his apartment in the 1100 block of Wisconsin to visit a friend in the same complex at about 4 p.m. Friday, according to the Pomona Police Department.
When the child’s mother went to the friend’s apartment just before midnight, she learned that he never arrived.
Officers and volunteers searched for the boy all day and passed out fliers before he was located at 5:20 p.m.
Gamboa told CBS2’s Rita Garcia that he had been playing with a friend and was scared to see the media, as well as police, when he returned home.
