Montreal police say a 14-year-old who was reported missing has been found and is safe.

Investigators sought the public's help to locate the teen who had last been seen Thursday morning when he left his home to head to school in the Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles borough.

Police said the boy has cognitive difficulties and the family had reasons to fear for his safety.
