Tyson Avery Curry left his home on Summit Commons Court on his bicycle around 4:15 p.m. Thursday. About two hours later, North Augusta Department of Public Safety officials were notified that the boy was missing, sparking a search.

"It was a long night for all of us," said North Augusta public safety Lt. Tim Pearson, adding that officials are just now starting an investigation into how and why the boy went missing.

"The main thing is the child is safe and sound now," he said.

Lt. Pearson said Tyson was found at about 6:50 a.m. this morning with his biological father at North Augusta Gardens Apartments on Hugh Street. He said the father

notified authorities that Tyson was with him.

Tyson is a student at North Augusta Elementary School, and had attended classes there Thursday. His foster family told investigators he often rode his bike in the neighborhood.

Lt. Pearson said Tyson is now at North Augusta public safety and officials are trying determine how he went missing.

Levi's Call is Georgia's Public Alert System & Amber Alert is a nationwide alert system for recovering all children. Tyson, we are believing you will be home safely very soon!

Thank God that he has been

Thank God that he has been found and is safe. I hope his biological father didn't kidnap, but glad that he called and reported that he was with him. I am glad to hear that this family can now rest peacefully and they will have a lot to be Thankful for come Thanksgiving. These days it's not safe for such a young person to be out and about alone regardless of where they are. Adults are not even safe anymore. Please keep your kids in sight at all times.

Thank you for this blessing

Thank you for this blessing of the child being found. It's a fearfulk, frantic feeling when you miss your child even a minute. My 17 month old grandson hid a few days ago under a dining room chair that had some clothes hanging on it...in 5 seconds while I poured a cup of coffee. I knew he was in the house, but he is a live wire and can turn many things into a near emergency if our backs are turned. He thought it was the funniest thing and when I heard him say....I hiding....I pulled him out and hugged him and told him you can't hide unless you tell Grandma you're going to hide. I have three adult children I still worry over.

It appears from the article

It appears from the article that the boy was in foster care and left the home eventually coming to the home of his biological father. This child will need a lot of prayer and emotional support as he has already been designated a deprived child who is at risk or he would not have been living with a foster family. It seems that when adults act badly, it is always their children who pay the price in one way or another. We can all thank God he was found.

karenlyss... the biological

karenlyss... the biological father most likely did not have the foster parent's information. There are safety issues in FP's giving their personal information to biological families without knowing them pretty well first. I'm glad his dad called to let the authorities know where the boy was. I feel for the kid in what he has gone through already and obiously he is hurting.

No matter what the situation,

No matter what the situation, kids want to be with their parents. If I were a 10 year old child, I'd go to my parent's house too. So many children wind up paying for the selfish choices that the parents make.
