Stone County authorities say they have found a toddler who wandered from his home Tuesday morning.
Police searched for 3-year-old Landen Cade Trammell by foot horseback and air. Police said Trammell was last seen around 8 a.m. inside his home in Onia, about 11 to 15 miles from Mountain View in Stone County.
County officials are holding a press conference to relay more news on the search for the missing boy.
Authorities tell our Little Rock affiliate that Trammell’s grandfather was watching him and thought the boy was asleep on the couch. Then an hour later he wasn’t there.
Hundreds of volunteers and sheriff’s deputies searched on foot and horseback for the child. The Baxter County Sheriff’s Office and Air Evac teams searched by helicopter, and department of correction dogs were brought in to sniff out the child’s scent.
Trammell is said to have been wearing only his white underwear when he wandered from his home. He is around 30 lbs and has blonde hair and blue eyes.
There are two representatives from the Missing Children’s Network assisting in the search. Colleen Nick, mother of missing Morgan Nick. Wednesday, September 12 is Morgan’s birthday.
According to Today’s THV, Police went door-to-door Tuesday when a neighbor said he saw a child matching the description playing in a nearby yard.
No foul play is suspected in the child’s disappearance.
