Missing Aurora boy found

An 11-year-old boy who was reported missing from west suburban Aurora early Friday has been found safe.

Heritier Rukumbuzi was last seen about 5 p.m. when he left his home in the 400 block of Plum Street in Aurora to go play soccer, according to Aurora police. He did not return, and his family reported him missing about 3:15 a.m. Friday.

He has since been located “safe and sound,” police said late Friday morning.
