A 9-year-old boy missing overnight has been found safe and well.
Rotorua police were this morning searching for the boy.
A Facebook post from the Bay of Plenty & Taupo Police page said the 9-year-old went missing from the Hamurana/Ngongotahā area. He had not been seen since 6pm last night.
A police media spokeswoman said his age and the fact that he had been missing overnight were of a concern to police.
The post said he may have hitchhiked into Rotorua Central.
