A seven-year-old Hamilton schoolboy who was reported missing overnight has been found.

Fairfield Primary student William Thompson was expected home at 2:30pm yesterday but never showed up, and was thought to have been seen in the area around his Paul Crescent home at about 2:40pm, police earlier said.

Senior Sergeant Andrew O'Reilly says William arrived "safe and well" at his school at about 8:15am today.

"His family were present at the school," he says. "They and police would like to thank the public and the media for their assistance in trying to locate him."
