OROVILLE, Calif. -

Oroville Police said at 3:45 a.m. Saturday, Butte County Search and Rescue found a missing Oroville child safe at River Bend Park.  

Vladimir Martin Huerta-Larios, 10, was located in the south end of the park, sleeping in a gazebo. He appeared to be in good health.

The Oroville Police Department had issued a news release Friday night, asking for the public's help in locating Huerta-Larios.

He was last seen Friday in the 800 block of Pomona Street about 6:30 p.m.
