Atlanta Police are asking residents to be on the lookout for a 10-year-old boy who has been missing since 1:30 a.m.

Officers said the 10-year-old has mental health issues and that the boy took off running after his aunt took him to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Hughes Spalding Hospital near Grady.
