Edmonton police say a missing two-year-old boy has been found safe.

Police had said the boy left home Friday night with a 42-year-old man and that the pair were last seen at the MacEwan LRT station in the city's downtown at 9 p.m.

Police said they knew each other, but that it was unusual for the man to have the boy with him for so long and they were concerned for the toddler's safety.

Late Saturday morning, police issued a news release stating the boy was found safe and unharmed in west Edmonton.

Police say they're still investigating, and that they aren't releasing further information about the case right now.
