An 11-year-old who went missing on Wednesday is now recovering after he was struck by a car.
Investigators say 11-year-old Branden Durham went missing from his home around 12:45 p.m. on the 2500 block of S. 66th Street. Police say surveillance video captured Durham traveling on foot eastbound on Elmwood Avenue from 66th Street at 2:19 p.m.
Durham's mother told NBC10 the boy is developmentally disabled and has the mind of a 7-year-old child. The mother also says they just moved to the area about a month ago and that the child doesn't know his way around.
Wednesday night, police say the boy was struck by a car on 69th and Market Streets. He was taken to the hospital, treated for minor injuries and was later reunited with his mother.
