JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A 3-year-old boy was found safe Saturday afternoon after initially being reported as missing. 

Police say friends went to the home of 37-year-old Jason Necaise sometime around 1 p.m.. When they arrived, they found Necaise incapacitated and the child left unattended. 

The friends left a note for the father, and took the toddler. When he woke up, Necaise reported his son as missing. Investigators found the note in the home while conducting the search and called the friends. 

The boy was returned and is now with his grandmother. Additionally, the Department of Human Services was notified about the incident. 

Necaise is facing charges of false reporting of a crime and simple possession of marijuana, as well as the charges for child neglect. All three charges are misdemeanors, according to the Jackson County Adult Detention Center's website. Necaise's bond is set at $2,000.
