HIALEAH, FLA. (WSVN) - It appears that an 11-year-old boy who went missing, Tuesday, in Hialeah, was discovered on a rooftop.
7SkyForce HD flew over the scene in a Hialeah neighborhood where police were seen with bloodhounds searching the area when they discovered Gort lying on the rooftop where he lives.
“We were just kind of searching here waiting for our next hit on this story when we spotted the child,” said 7SkyForce’s Ralph Rayburn. “He’s on the roof of the house.”
7News alerted police. “We’re asking one of our people on our assignment desk to call the Hialeah Police and let them know that the child is OK,” said Rayburn.
Upon finding out that Angel was on the roof, officers were able to coax him into coming down.
“My mom is embarrassed,” Angel said. “I didn’t mean to cause any trouble, and I didn’t mean to waste any of the police officers’ time.”
Angel said he has ADHD, and sometimes, he can lose control. Angel said he was upset because he didn’t want to go to camp. He then got into a fight with his mom and ran away.
When they couldn’t find him, Angel’s family reported him missing, at around 10 a.m. Angel was spotted shortly after 12 p.m.
When asked what he was thinking during the ordeal, Angel responded, “Not really sure. I was thinking of what’s going to happen. I was thinking of what I should’ve never done.”
This is not the first time Angel has run away. However, he said he will never do this again.
“I was thinking of how hard my mom works to do this, and I just do the most stupidest things sometimes. It’s very difficult for her, and I’m proud of the patience she has for me,” Angel said.
Despite everything, Angel’s family is relieved that he is OK.
