    Hayward police said they located a missing three year old who went missing Friday night.

    Police said the boy, Sonny Lee, was being watched by his grandfather. The grandfather said he woke up and discovered Sonny was missing.

    This happened around 9 p.m. at a home on Orchard Avenue.

    Police said it appeared Sonny either walked out or was taken out of the house.

    In the end the boy was with his father, according to police. That man, John Lee, took the child without the family's knowledge, police said.

    Police did not issue an Amber Alert and initially did not release a photo of either the child or the father.

    The grandparents currently have court-ordered custody of Sonny. Police said John Lee may face criminal charges, but the important thing is that Sonny is safe.
