MANATEE -- An 11-year-old boy who ran away from his Bradenton home late Tuesday has been found safe, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

Justin Cangemi was located Wednesday morning "in good condition," sheriff's spokesman Dave Bristow wrote in an email.

About 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, deputies responded to Cangemi's home in the 6100 block of Ninth Avenue Northeast to a report of a juvenile acting out anger issues, according to a news release.

"When deputies spoke with mom ... the juvenile exited out the front door," the report states.

Deputies searched the area but were unable to find the child.
