EVERETT — A 12-year-old Everett boy who ran away during a counseling session Wednesday was found on Friday, police reported.
Police and relatives were looking for Brad George, who suffers from a number of medical problems requiring twice-daily medicine.
The boy was located in north Everett on Friday and reunited with his family, Everett Police Sgt. Robert Goetz said.
Relatives were concerned because the boy is scared of the dark and frightened to be alone.
Relatives and officials were worried that the longer the boy went without treatment, the greater the risk that he’d hurt himself or possibly others, Goetz said.
The boy stepped out of a counseling session Wednesday afternoon at Compass Health on Federal Avenue, said Gina Latshaw, his guardian.
Brad sometimes gets frustrated during the sessions and takes breaks by sitting in a lobby, she said.
In the past, he’s sometimes left and walked to a nearby friend’s house, but he’s never run away, Latshaw said.
“For him to just be missing is really out of character,” she said.
Every hour waiting and searching was terrible, Latshaw said. She’s raised Brad since he was 17 months old.
