POLICE have confirmed they have now found a missing seven-year-old Stourbridge boy whose disappearance sparked a helicopter search.

The West Midlands Police helicopter had been out earlier this evening (Saturday December 8), scouring the area in search of the youngster, named Jack, who had gone missing from the Penfields area of the town.

But the West Midlands Police Force Response team has since confirmed on Twitter that he had been found safe and well.
