Lok was last seen at about 2:15 p.m. Tuesday in front of his Portland residence after being dropped off by his school bus.

The investigation never considered the case a stranger abduction and the boy's biological mother and boyfriend quickly became suspects.

In Olympia, Wash., Lok's biological mother, 34-year-old Morning Star Marcellay, was arrested earlier by officers on warrants unrelated to the missing child case.

Her boyfriend, Michael Wayne Hall, is in contact with law enforcement and cooperating.

Police didn't say where Lok was found or whether he was with Hall and the circumstances surrounding how the child went missing are still being investigated.

Lok is with law enforcement and his family has been notified of his safe status.
