A missing 4-year-old boy in southeast Houston has been found safe. 

Jeremiah Green went missing Tuesday afternoon. He was last seen napping in his grandma’s apartment in the 6200 block of Waltrip.

The Houston Police Department said Jeremiah's mother took him from the grandmother's home while he was napping. Police found him at the mother's home in Galena Park. He was safe and unharmed. 

Danielle Steucy said she went downstairs to visit a neighbor and when she returned, her 19-year-old daughter said Jeremiah had vanished.

The family searched the complex on foot and on bicycle but found no sign of the boy. They reported him missing to HPD around 3:30 p.m.

“Please return my grandson to me. He’s the only grandson I have and he is my world,” Steucy pleaded. “Can y’all please somebody help me and return my grandson to me.”

He was reunited with his grandmother on Tuesday night with a heartwarming embrace. 

"I asked him and said Jeremiah did you miss Granny, he said yes, I said you glad you're home, and he said yes," said Stuecy. "So that is enough for me. The look on my face says it all. I thank you guys. I know there are kids that come up missing and are never found."

Despite the search that lasted several hours, police let the boy's mother leave the scene without being charged because it is a CPS matter.
