A boy who was missing in Hernando County was found safe Tuesday afternoon.
Isaiah Theo Holland, 12, apparently got in trouble at Winding Waters K-8 school and walked away from the campus grounds.
A teacher tried to chase him, but he disappeared into the woods, FOX 13's Aaron Mesmer reported.
Isaiah was apparently in the woods for several hours until deputies spotted him walking on the side of the road, in the area of Mirage Avenue and Labrador Duck Road. That's about a half-mile from the school.
The sheriff's office says their K9 units did pick up his trail in the wooded area.
Authorities said they were relieved to find him before daylight faded.
"Mr. Holland has been safely returned to his family. Thank you for all assistance," the sheriff's office spokesperson said.
We'll have more information as it becomes available.
