LAUDERHILL (CBSMiami) – A child reported missing in Lauderhill has been found in Miami-Dade County.

Authorities found 11-year-old Elijah Kurtzer a little more than a day after he went missing from his home.

The circumstances of how he got to Miami-Dade county remain unclear.

Investigators said Elijah left his parent’s home, heading for school on Wednesday. A few minutes later, his father found his backpack with his belongings on the stairwell of their building near the 4100 Block on NW 26th Street.

Officers later checked the surrounding area and school officials said he had not shown up to school.

Police said Elijah had previously expressed interest in going to Georgia.
