An intellectually disabled boy from Porirua has been reunited with his parents after going missing on Saturday.

The boy, aged about six, was spotted at the Mungavin Avenue Netball Courts about 9am and cared for at the Porirua police station until his parents came to collect him about three hours later.

Police say his parents had been looking for him for the whole time, but had not contacted the station to let them know the child was missing.
