UPDATE: Boy found after Burnsville police sought help in locating him

The 11-year-old boy who was reported missing on July 16 in Burnsville has been found unharmed.

Yasin Abdulkadir was found at approximately 11 a.m. this morning in the apartment of another child he knew from school. He was returned home safely earlier today.

The Burnsville Police Department thanked members of the public who provided tips and information during the search.

Burnsville police are asked this morning for the public’s help in finding Yasin who had been missing for nearly two full days.

Yasin left his apartment in the 1000 block of Burnsville Parkway West on his own accord at approximately 10:40 p.m. Sunday, July 16.

His mother said Yasin has a history of running away, and there was no reason to suspect any foul play, or that he was in any specific danger, according to Burnsville police.

Police reported that the situation was concerning considering Yasin’s age and the length of time he had been gone.
