MOLINE ACRES, MO (KTVI) – After a frantic night and morning looking for their 11-year-old son, a family was overcome with joy as they reunited with the boy in front of the police station.

Tre-Vun Walker had last been seen by his 14-year-old brother at the Lewis and Clark library around 4:00pm Thursday. The older brother left and watched Tre-Vun go back into the library.

When Tre-Vun's mother got back to a family member's home later and realized Tre-Vun was missing, she started searching for him around the library and elsewhere. She finally called police a little before 2:00am Friday.

Police called in search and rescue teams and were preparing for a press conference at the Moline Acres police station. A little after 8:00am, commotion at a relative’s house was seen and soon after, Tre-Vun was brought to the police station and reunited with his parents.

Tre-Vun spoke with police and his family, and even spoke to us on air.  Apparently, he left the library with some friends, but was unable to call home.  He told reporter Chris Regnier he was scared all night.

The boy appears to be safe and well.
