Police deliver Christmas to family in Oklahoma City

(KFOR) -

An Oklahoma City family is celebrating a Christmas they won't forget after police got together to put gifts under the tree.

Sophia Reed moved her family to an Oklahoma City apartment using the last of her funds, including Christmas money.

"What little Christmas money we had you know to pay my security deposit for here," Reed said.

Then last week, she called police in a moment of panic when her 13-year-old son Diauris disappeared.

Sophia didn't know her children had a plan.

"I was afraid he was going to get in trouble," Sophia's daughter, Deneisha said about Diauris. "I was very afraid he was going to get in trouble. I just didn't want to say anything because it would blow the whole thing."

"The whole thing" was a plan to make money to buy their mom a Christmas gift. Deneisha suggested collecting cans and that's what Diauris secretly snuck off to do.

"I just wanted to do something for my mama," Diauris said.

He came home when he saw officers and told them what he was doing.
