Kout Mayul

MILLCREEK — A 10-year-old boy missing since Saturday night was found Sunday morning.

Police say Kout Mayul was found about 10:30 a.m. after spending the night at a friend's house.

Prior to being located Sunday, Kout had not been seen since 10 p.m. Saturday. He had been with a large group of family and friends at a barbeque at Valley Central Park, 4013 S. 700 West. Police say they believe the boy may have left the park because he had been scolded by his mother.

Kout lives near the park and is familiar with the area, police said.

Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said officers searched the area throughout the night, contacting all family and friends at the barbeque for possible leads. The search ended Sunday morning when Kout was spotted leaving a friend's home.
