A 5th grader reported missing Friday afternoon has been located safe and unharmed.

Edgecombe County School officials reported Donnie Cox, a fifth grader at Bullock School, ran away this afternoon. He was last seen about 2:45, and then found a couple of hours later.

Officials have not said where he was found.

Authorities in Edgecombe County are searching for a youngster who ran away from school this afternoon.

School officials say Donnie Cox is a fifth grader at Bullock School. They say the 5th grader was last seen around 2:45 p.m. after a parent picked him up on Bullock School Road and dropped him off near Rocky Mount Senior High School.

The child, whom they says is an exceptional student, has run away from school before. There is an active search underway for the student who was last wearing a royal polo shirt and khaki pants.

Right now we do not have a picture of Donnie Cox.

    if this child has ran away before, sounds like someone needs to check into the reasons. too many stories of "hidden" child abuse and/or neglect to ignore the signs. if the child's guardians have nothing to hide, then they should be willing to cooperate with questions concerning their child's well being.
