A 13-year-old student missing from Atlanta Area school for the Deaf is safe at home, police in Clarkston, Ga., said.

Police put out an alert when Xavier Williams disappeared after leaving the school on Indian Creek Drive Friday. According to police, a friend said he saw Xavier walk toward the bus but he never actually made it onto the bus.

His mother, Veronica Williams, later called the school to say her son had walked into her home.

Xavier wears two hearing aids and glasses. He only communicates using sign language.
