MILLCREEK — A 12-year-old boy was found in good condition late Friday afternoon after going missing for several hours, police said.

Jose Nova had been missing since 8 a.m., police said. He was visiting his grandmother in the area of 586 E. Hillpark Circle (4300 South) when he went for a ride on his scooter.

Unified police reported around 3:45 p.m. that Jose had been found a few blocks away near 3800 South and 500 East and was being united with his mother.

Unified Police Lt. Lex Bell said the grandmother had recently moved there, and detectives believe Jose was visiting for the first time and isn't familiar with the area. He wasn't believed to have his cellphone with him, Bell said.
