A missing 6-year-old boy from Jerusalem was found safe on Monday morning after security forces and his family engaged in all-night searches for him.

Border Police forces, Israel Police forces, observers and volunteer groups started looking  for Yaakov Dov Srot,  focusing their search efforts on the immediate vicinity of his neighborhood.

Srot, who according to police is autistic, got off a bus Sunday at the Neve Yaakov neighborhood of Jerusalem and abruptly took off running, quickly disappearing from his father's sight. On Monday morning, he was found by Border Police walking aimlessly in an open area. He was reported in good condition and has been reunited with his family.
