Missing Chatsworth boy found safe at friend's house
An 11-year-old Chatsworth boy reported missing from his apartment was found safe Monday at a friend’s house in Woodland Hills, police said.
Cody Burton went to take out the trash Sunday night but never returned to his home in the 10200 block of Eton Avenue, police said. His mother called police, who searched for him.
He turned up Monday morning when the friend's parents contacted the boy's mother after seeing a TV report about the missing child, said Officer Gregory Baek of the Los Angeles Police Department.
“We don’t know how he got to the friend’s house,” Baek said. “All we know is the boy’s OK. He returned to his mother.”
