The 6-year-old Fair Oaks boy who was being sought by the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department has been returned home safely, according to authorities.
The boy, Raymond Peters (photo, right), had been last seen Friday evening with his mother, Tricia Pelletier (photo, left), who does not have legal custody of her son. She violated her court-ordered visitation rights when she failed to return him to the custody of his father and grandmother Sunday, according to a Sheriff's Department news release.
Raymond was considered to be at-risk because he has asthma and it is believed that his mother does not have the medication the youngster needs.
However, Pelletier reportedly saw herself on the news today and returned Raymond to his grandmother's house, said sheriff's Deputy Jason Ramos. The boy had not been harmed.
Pelletier's whereabouts are not known, Ramos said.
Raymond is described as white, 3 feet, 9 inches tall and weighing about 45 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes.
Pelletier, 29, is described as white, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, weighing 125 pounds, with red hair and green eyes. She is known to drive an early to mid-1990s white, four-door Chevy Blazer. Officials said she has no known address and may be living out of the vehicle.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Raymond or his mother is asked to call the Sheriff's Department at (916) 874-5115, or Crime Alert at (916) 443-4357.
