Police have found a boy who went missing from a home run by the IHC in Christchurch.

The 15-year-old, who has intellectual and other disabilities, went missing from the home in the suburb of New Brighton about 5.15pm on Wednesday.

Police had fears for his safety due to the boy's disabilities and heavy snowfall in the city throughout the day.

A police patrol spotted him about 7.20pm and he has been returned to the home.
