Looks like a minor miracle. I wonder how much he will remember when he is older.
Mo. boy found alive 2 days after wandering away
By JIM SALTER – 13 hours ago

ARCADIA, Mo. (AP) — A 3-year-old boy was found in remarkably good condition Wednesday, 50 hours after he wandered away from his home and became lost in the rugged hills of Missouri's Mark Twain National Forest.

Joshua Childers slipped out of his family's mobile home near Arcadia in rural southeast Missouri around 11:30 a.m. Monday.

Two full days and nights of searching proved increasingly frustrating until around 4 p.m. Wednesday, when search volunteer Donnie Halpin, walking along an all-terrain vehicle trail about three miles from the boy's home, spied a couple of stray dogs sniffing at something.

Halpin, 57, told The Associated Press he looked on the ground of a hollow near a creek bottom and saw the boy lying there, facing the other way. Unsure of the boy was alive, Halpin said, "Hey, Bud."

"He jumped right up and grinned at me," Halpin said. "I said, 'You ready to go home?' He said, 'Yeah.'"

I doubt he will remember anything. I will though. Thanks for the story.

2 days is not enough to hurt a healthy child in fair weather. He only wandered 3 miles on an easy trail?

As if he won't remember anything. I can remember things when I was 2...
