Two missing runaway boys from Tacoma were found safely Friday morning, nearly two days after they were last seen.

Jeff Zupan, 11, and Zabian Welcome, 9, were found sleeping on a sidewalk planting strip in front of a home near 1200 North Tacoma Avenue.

The woman who lives in the home called 911 when she saw them outside.

Police are interviewing the boys, believed to have run away on Wednesday after fighting with a caretaker.

Officers alerted the public to their disappearance because of concern about the hot weather.

Both have been known to run away for short periods of time.
