(Scroll down for video) A mother who freaked out when her 9-year-old son went missing, called police before finding out that he was arrested for burglary, police in Michigan said.

Stephanie Horton of Detroit, was in a state of panic on Wednesday night, when her 9-year-old son Kamian Strawder did not come home.

Horton went to work at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday and Kemian went to play with his friends. When he failed to come home at night, she reported the disappearance to the police.

A day later, the police called her to say that her son was not missing. He had been arrested for breaking into a home. Prosecutor however, decided to drop the case.

Horton went to pick up her child from the Juvenile Detention Center on Thursday afternoon. Detroit Police said that the boy refused to give them his mother’s phone number.

Instead, they went to her home, but no one answered the door.
