A child and his dogs are safe after going missing in the woods yesterday.
The parents of the 9 year old boy called 911 at just after 11 yesterday morning. They said the boy was walking on Overlook Drive when the 2 dogs took off and he chased them. The parents searched the area around Overlook Drive unsuccessfully for more than an hour.
Multiple groups including the Sheriff’s Office and fire departments began to organize a search. The Rec Deputy spoke with ATV riders who reported seeing the boy.
He was found safe near County Road B nearly 2 miles from where he was last seen. He told the Rec Deputy he was following the ATV trail because he knew it would eventually lead him back to a road. The boy and his dogs were reportedly tired but safe.
