An 11-year-old Albuquerque boy who vanished after he was suspended for smoking pot at school was found safe Wednesday morning more than 80 miles away from home.
Jeremiah Baca, 11, was reported missing to police by his family Monday night, the same day he and five other sixth-graders at the school were suspended for allegedly smoking pot on school grounds.
Baca was rumored to have been seen around campus since Monday. But Wednesday morning police confirmed he was found with his grandparents in Socorro.
Socorro police said the boy is safe but wouldn’t comment on how he got there.
The boy is now in custody of the state Children, Youth and Families Department, but the agency wouldn’t say why.
