GRIMES COUNTY, Texas — A 3-year-old boy missing since Wednesday has been found alive and safe, rescuers confirmed.

Christopher Ramirez was found by a landowner near Texas State Highway 249, outside of Magnolia in Montgomery County, said Tim Miller, founder and director of Texas EquuSearch, a search and rescue organization dedicated to searching for missing persons.

Ramirez was reunited with his mother and was taken to a hospital to be evaluated.

Grimes County Sheriff Don Sowell said Ramirez was found around 11:45 a.m. CT and was dehydrated. He was being transported to Texas Children’s Hospital.

Hundreds of searchers combed the woods of southern Grimes County for Ramirez as investigators looked for leads related to his disappearance.
