A 10-year-old boy reported missing Wednesday morning was found near his home, and the boy's mother and her boyfriend were arrested on weapons and drug paraphernalia complaints.

Police were called about 8:30 a.m. after the boy could not be found at his mother's boyfriend's home at 13721 SE 31 and never showed up at school. He had last been seen at the house about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

An Oklahoma City police K-9 unit found him in a wooded area near his home about 12:30 p.m., police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said. Wardlow said police do not know how long he had been in the woods.

Jodi George, 38, and Derrick Allred, 39, were arrested after officers found weapons and drug paraphernalia in the house when they went to look for the boy, police said. Both had prior felony convictions, Wardlow said.

George pleaded guilty to methamphetamine possession and obtaining property under false pretenses in 2006, according to court records. She was given a five-year deferred sentence. Online court records did not show a criminal history for Allred in Oklahoma.

Wardlow said she did not know who had custody of the boy and another child in the house, but the state Department of Human Services was notified.
