A missing 6-year-old Lexington boy is back with his family.

Mirmal Utereti was found safe around 8:30 Friday night near some shrubbery at the Thoroughbred Apartments.

Neighbors tell ABC 36 Utereti said he was playing hide-and-seek and hid under a bush near his house.

They say the boy eventually fell asleep and when he woke up, he noticed the commotion and continued to hide because he was scared.

Several officers and a helicopter were part of the search at the apartments near Nicholasville Road.

Police say Utereti was back with his family a little more than an hour after he was reported missing.
