Elijah Cole, the missing 11-year-old boy from BridgeMill, has been located and is fine, the spokesman for the said this morning.
His father and a family friend are currently being questioned by investigators, Lt. Jay Baker said.
No one had seen or heard from Cole, his father Jason Cole or family friend Will Copes since they stayed at a friend's Cherokee County home Friday night, Baker said Monday evening.
Cole lives with his father and grandmother in BridgeMill, but authorities thought the boy and his dad might have been "traveling back to Mississippi where Jason Cole and Will Copes used to reside or possibly to Tennessee where the juvenile’s mother resides," he said. Officials were concerned because they didn't know if Jason Cole was "off medication that he needs."
It's not clear where Cole was found.
Baker said the Cherokee Sheriff's Office "will provide more details this afternoon."
