The Italian side had begun a social media campaign in July, which was aimed towards raising awareness for missing children

A Kenyan boy who featured in Henrikh Mkhitaryan??s announcement at AS Roma has been located and returned to his family.

The boy was pictured next to Mkhitaryan's unveiling video in the club's posts following the Armenian wide man??s loan switch from Arsenal.

According to BBC Sports, the new development comes after a girl from London was found when she appeared next to the Serie A side's new signing, defender Mert Cetin.

Roma had announced the signing of Turkish defender Cetin in August, and once again prominently featured the image of a missing individual. 

The club launched the campaign in July. Armenia midfielder Mkhitaryan, 30, joined Roma on a season-long loan after a disappointing 18-months at The Emirates.

He scored on his Serie A debut, with his new side beating Sassuolo 4-2 - the same day the Kenyan boy was found.

The three-time Serie A winners have partnered with two missing child charities - the US-based National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and Telefono Azzurro - for the summer initiative.

It is inspired by rock band Soul Asylum's music video for their 1992 song Runaway Train, which highlighted the faces and names of missing children, similar to those printed on millions of milk cartons in the USA during the 1980s and 90s.
