BRADENTON, Fla. -- A 12-year-old boy who was dropped off at a skating rink in Bradenton Friday night who was missing has been found safe, authorities said. 

The father of Leonel Corona told Manatee County sheriff's deputies he dropped off his son at Astro Skate at 3611 Third St. W. about 8:30 p.m, a Manatee County Sheriff's Office news release said. 

When Alfredo Bartolo Corona returned to the rink to pick up his son about 11:00 p.m., he was told Leonel had left with a friend. 

The family suspected Leonel went to his girlfriend's house, but when they checked he wasn't there. 

Officials with the Manatee County Sheriff's Office said that Leonel Corona was located by 4 p.m. on Monday and is okay. 

No additional information has been released.
