CLAY COUNTY, Fla. -- An 11-year-old, who was reported missing by his mother Thursday morning, has been found.

The Clay County Sheriff's Office reports Ethan Rainey was spotted inside the WalMart on Blanding Boulevard Thursday afternoon.

He is in custody and will go home with his family after questioning.

Rainey's mother reported him missing around 8 a.m. Thursday. According to deputies, Rainey did not go to school and did not return home during the day.

Deputies say Rainey's mother believed her son may have run away. Because of his age, CCSO assigned a large team of deputies to the search, which centered in the Doctor's Lake area.
