TOLLESON, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- A 12-year-old boy who has been missing since last week has been found safe. Officers say Mathew Dubose was found on Monday night near Camelback and El Mirage roads in Litchfield Park and was reunited with his mom.

Dubose was reported missing last Wednesday after he didn’t come home from school. The same day, he was seen on a Ring video playing basketball with another boy at an apartment complex near 83rd Avenue and Thomas Road. That was the last sighting of Dubose before he was found days later.

According to officers, a resident recognized him from the news and called 911, and he was then picked up by his mom. Police did not say where he had been staying since last week.
