Police found a boy who went missing overnight alive more than a mile from his house.
Brandon Fotta, 11, was transported to Mainland Medical Center, but had no signs of injuries, Hitchcock Police Chief Wilmon Smith said.
Fotta had last been seen asleep on his family’s sofa at home in the 300 block of Mimosa Drive, Smith said.
When Fotta’s father checked at about 6 a.m. Saturday, the boy was missing and the gate to the yard was open.
The Galveston County Sheriff’s Office, Equusearch and the Hitchcock and Santa Fe fire department assisted Hitchcock police in the search.
