MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - A 10-year-old boy who was reported missing in Miami Gardens was found Wednesday by a Local 10 News crew.

Local 10 News reporter Shyann Malone and her photojournalist spotted E'Mari Bell walking near his home Wednesday afternoon.

"This is Shyann, the reporter that was at your house," Malone told the boy's mother in a telephone conversation. "We have your son."

Malone waited with the boy until his mother and grandmother arrived.

E'Mari told his family that he left home Tuesday because he was being bullied.

His father said he wasn't aware of the situation and planned to speak with him more about it.

E'Mari told Malone that he spent Tuesday night in a trailer. Authorities said that trailer is just a couple blocks away from his home.
