Oakland police have located a five-year-old boy who disappeared from Arroyo Viejo Park Saturday afternoon.
Darryl Carter III was at the park at 7701 Krause St. attending a function and was waiting for his mother to pick him up, according to police spokeswoman Johnna Watson.
The boy's mother, Rasheeda Garrett, said she is relieved her son is ok.
"I'm just glad that he's safe," she said. "It's a horrible feeling. I don't want nobody to ever have that feeling that their child is missing."
He was last seen in the computer room at the park center, and was reported missing around 3 p.m.
He was found shortly before 7 p.m., Watson said.
Carter is new to the area and unfamiliar with his surrounding.
