Authorities in Onslow County have found a 13-year-old boy who had been missing for nearly seven hours.

The boy was not hurt when a family member found him near the Richard Riggs Road area shortly before 5 p.m.

The boy had wandered away from his father's home in that area of Swansboro, officials said.

Several fire departments were part of the search; law enforcement agencies including the Onslow County Sheriff's Office were also among search teams.
