JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A 5-year-old boy missing on his first day of school has been found safely.

Officials of the Jackson public schools system tell WJTV that the child was put on the wrong daycare van and was taken to the wrong daycare center.

The child was identified as a kindergartner from Wilkins Elementary School.

School officials discovered the child had been put on the wrong van Tuesday when workers from his daycare center arrived to pick him up after school.
