FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas - A 9-year-old boy who was missing in Fort Bend County has been found safe, according to deputies.

The boy, who deputies would only call Benjamin, went missing around 7 p.m. Tuesday and had last been seen on Cinco Terrace near FM 1093.

Deputies said they believed he was mad that he was grounded, so Benjamin left his home with his backpack and a piggy bank.

Just after midnight, deputies shared a post saying Benjamin had been found safe.
