    The search now appears to be over.

    A family friend found Jeremy near Franklin Avenue and he is going to hospital to be evaluated after he said he did not remember anything.

    Police are responding to the boy's home.

    "There was mention that it was a minivan that took him and that's all they keep mentioning, over and over, so we're sticking by that," Margarita Valdez, Jeremy's aunt, said early Thursday morning. "And then they found his bike in Highland Park and that's the only information we have about him."

    Police have not confirmed whether or not they have found Jeremy's bike or if they are looking for a specific vehicle.
