Missing 8-year-old Southaven boy found

(WMC-TV) – Southaven police say they've found an eight-year-old boy who went missing Wednesday night.

Investigators found Cooper Truett just before noon Thursday after a search that lasted hours.

Police tell Action News 5 that the child's shirt and BB gun were found in the family's car and they believe that Cooper came home sometime Thursday morning before vanishing again.

Teams on the ground and in the air searched a wooded area and a ditch behind the little boy's home before finding him.

Police say Cooper Truett has a learning disability and may have the mental capacity of a four-year-old.

Action News 5 has a crew on the scene and will have more on this story as soon as it becomes available.
