Police thanks after boy missing after 'incident' at school found 'safe and well'

A 12-year-old boy who went missing after an " incident" at school has been found safe and well, police have said.

Joshua Oxley's family reported his disappearance at 4.30pm on Tuesday after he failed to return to his home in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, at the usual time.

Since then, Joshua was caught on CCTV at nearby Chapeltown railway station and also in Leeds city centre.

On Wednesday, South Yorkshire Police said on Twitter: "12-year-old Joshua Oxley has been found safe and well in Leeds by SYP (South Yorkshire Police) officers. A massive thank you to all who shared the appeals."
