TAMARAC, Fla. – The 12-year-old missing Boynton Beach child, was found safe in Tamarac yesterday by agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
 
The Boynton Beach Police Department (BBPD) Wednesday requested FDLE to issue a statewide Missing Child Alert to aid in their exhaustive investigation to locate the boy. Multiple agencies joined BBPD’s search efforts.
 
A citizen’s tip to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children provided the critical lead investigators needed to find the juvenile. Public awareness, made possible with the help of media partners and citizens sharing the information on social media, is critical to the success of Florida’s statewide alert programs – AMBER, Missing Child, Silver, Blue and upcoming Purple Alerts.
