UPDATED: Child Found In South Missouri Woods

STOUTLAND, Mo. (AP)_Authorities say a 4-year-old boy who wandered into a wooded area behind his family’s rural Missouri home while playing hide-and-seek with several other children has been found unharmed.

The Camden County Sheriff’s Department says Bryce McCraken was found about one mile from his home in Stoutland by his uncle Jonathan Stradt, who was helping with the search. Authorities say the uncle called the boy’s name and the boy answered.

More than 100 people, including dog rescue teams, helped comb the woods and fields around town after the boy went missing Sunday afternoon.
