A 12-year-old boy from Lumberton, New Jersey, who was missing for nearly 17 hours has been found safe.

Tymin Coleman was last seen riding his bike near his home around 6:30 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Glenwood and Estate roads in the town's Hollybrook section, police said. He was riding alone.

When Coleman didn't return home, his family began searching and called police. The search continued overnight.

Just before 11:30 a.m. Monday, Lumberton police said they found the boy. They have not said where he was found or his condition.

The boy's mother came out of the family's home thanking the community and media for their help in searching for Coleman.

Officers located the boy's bike before finding him. The boy does not have a history of running away, police said. Police used K9s and neighborhood volunteers combed through yards and checked storm drains and sheds.
