Missing Santee Boy Found Safe

A 12-year-old boy who ran away from a YMCA in La Mesa, because he believed he was in trouble with his mother, was found about four hours later safe at home in Santee, sheriff's officials said Tuesday.

Xavier John Ferenchak ran from the East County Family YMCA at 8881 Dallas St. about 5:45 p.m. Monday, said Sgt. Damon Blankenbaker of the San Diego Sheriff's Department.

He returned to his home in Santee about 10:15 p.m., Lt. Mike Munsey said.
