An 11-year-old boy who was reported missing on Wednesday has been found safe, San Jose Police said Friday. They did not offer any other details. 

Ivan Gonzalez was last seen on Wednesday around 1 p.m. walking away from his home in the 400 block of N. 21st Street. 

KTVU spoke with Sara Garcia, the boy's mother, on Thursday. She said she received a call Wednesday night that he may be with friends in their old neighborhood on Heller Place near Cesar Chavez Elementary. 

She said he left with a backpack, a laptop and her CalFresh food stamp card. 

The mother did disclose her son was recently suspended from school and that she thinks he's "11 going on 17."
