New London — A 12-year-old boy who ran away and allegedly stole his mother's SUV has been found safe, according to his mother.

Carlos Roldan Jr., 12, was found safe in Ansonia on Saturday after being missing for nearly a week. His mother, Jacquelyn Luz, said she was contacted on Saturday by police, who told her that her son had been found safe. She then drove to Ansonia to pick him up.

Roldan allegedly ran away from home on the night of Feb. 2 and took his mother's silver Ford Explorer, which was found a few days later, also in Ansonia, Luz said.

Police had issued a Silver Alert for Roldan on Feb. 4, referring to him as an endangered runaway.
