I caught my neighbor leaving his 12-year-old son home alone and he has not come back in 6 hours. Should I call CPS?
NO!! Why is this even a question? I understand your concern but if the only problem is what you stated in your question here then you are very much what one would consider to be a nosy neighbor. My mom taught me how to be alone in the house at age 11. She taught me to not open the doors for anybody, the food is in the fridge, call your brothers in any emergency, and keep both doors of the front and back of the house locked. The top and bottom lock. When summer ended and I went back to school she would leave home for work at 7am, I’d go to school at 7:30am and came back home the same way at 4pm before my mom came home at 8pm. I was always fine. You gotta chill.
