Police say a 14-year-old boy who was reported missing last night has been found safe and sound.

Police said that the boy was reported missing last night and was found within hours after his missing person report was lodged.

They said that the boy was found safe and sound and that the minor had no injuries when he was found.

Police did not elaborate on the circumstances in which he was reported missing nor how and where the teenager was found.

But Police did say that they were further investigating the incident.

Several sources have said that the boy was abducted after he was seen being forced into a car. The sources have also said that the police were investigating the case as an abduction rather than a missing person case.

Reports on social media conspire that the 14-year-old boy was questioned after a 13-year-old boy was found brutally murdered earlier this year.

Authorities had arrested and charged two suspects in the heinous murder of the teenager who was found in a luggage bag dumped near the newly developed Phase II area of Hulhumale'.
