MEMPHIS, Tenn. — An 11-year-old boy who became the center of a City Watch after he was seen driving in Raleigh has been reunited with his family.

According to police, 11-year-old Jaheim Ewing was reported missing from his home in the 100 block of Wesley Forest Drive in Whitehaven.

Memphis Police say the boy’s grandmother, Sherri Hearn, told officers she saw him driving a gold-colored vehicle in the 3600 of Royal Wood Drive in Raleigh at around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday night.

Nearly two days into the search, Hearn says they got a call saying Jaheim had been found safe at a friend’s house in Cordova.

“I appreciate everybody who have called and tried to help look and prayers and everything they could give positive,” Hearn said.

Hearn says she has since learned that the car Jaheim was driving was possibly stolen.

“He had nothing to do with that, but he was with some young boys, around his age, that did that and he did willingly get in the car and knew it was stolen, and he did drive it,” Hearn said.

Ahead of Jaheim running away, Hearn claims that he was mad about having to relocate from Memphis to Nashville. It’s a destination that she says is best for him after this incident.

“The group of friends that he has, they are not good to be around,” Hearn said, “and if he continues to hang with these young boys, he’s going to be in serious trouble, and we don’t want that for him.”

WREG has reached out to MPD to learn more vehicle and possible charges. We are still waiting to hear back.
