A Michigan boy who went missing from his home for the second time this year has been found safe again.

Our CBS affiliates at WLNS report Jace Lyons, 9, went missing Saturday night. After a two-day search, Jace was found just before 9 p.m. Monday.

Police told WLNS Jace was found hiding in a camper trailer not far from his home.

Jace first went missing back in January 18 of this year. He was found two days later.

WLNS reported court documents show Jace had a troubled home life. Child Protective Services filed a petition to remove the boy from his adoptive mother’s custody after allegations of abuse and neglect.

According to WLNS, the report said Jace told investigators his mother would spank him with a metal spoon.

The boy also told investigators he would be left home alone for hours, sometimes overnight, while his mother worked or stayed with friends, WLNS reported.
