AVONDALE, LA (WVUE) -

An 11-year-old boy who had been missing since Wednesday morning has been found.

According to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, Markel Joyce knocked on the door of a residence in the 500 block of Garden Road in Avondale around 2:35 p.m. on Friday.

He asked for something to drink. The woman let Joyce inside of her house and gave him something to eat. She realized that the boy was Joyce and called 911.

Joyce was taken to the investigations bureau for questioning.

Deputies said Joyce ran away from his residence around 9 a.m. after an argument with his foster mother. Officers did not suspect foul play and just wanted Joyce to get home safely.
