A 12-year-old boy who was last seen near Zalma Tuesday morning was found early Wednesday morning in Cape Girardeau.

Brent Jones was found by police Wednesday around 6 a.m. at the Cape Girardeau Wal-Mart. It's first time he had been seen since he was reported missing Tuesday morning.

Cape Girardeau police say someone noticed the 12-year-old at the store Wednesday morning.
