Missing Fairburn boy found at Publix

FAIRBURN, Ga. -- An 11-year-old Fairburn boy who disappeared Thursday has been found safe.

Ricky Wang was found at around 8 a.m. Friday at the Publix in Tyrone, about four miles from his home. Police said he spent the night in the woods.

Wang had been missing since about 4:30 p.m. Thursday after getting off a school bus outside his neighborhood on Johnson Road in Fairburn.

Witnesses told police that instead of walking into the subdivision where he lived, Ricky began walking down Johnson Road toward Coweta County and the City of Palmetto. Ricky is not known to have friends or relatives in the direction he was last seen walking.

Fairburn Police tweeted early Friday, about three hours before the boy was found, that Wang was spotted on Palmetto-Tyrone Road near Lincoln Road in Tyrone.
