A missing 4-year-old boy was united with his terrified family after a police pilot located him wandering around an Ohio bean field last week.
The child, who has not been identified, was seen in Xenia Township, near Dayton, pushing through the tall stalks of greenery that went up to his shoulders on Thursday, footage from the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Aerial Section shows.
“I believe I’ve located him. He’s in the corner of the bean field, walking around, walking toward the corner,” the unidentified pilot tells ground control.
“He’s working his way back south. He’s right on the edge of the bean field and the tree line right there.”
The pilot tells ground control that the boy is roughly “20 yards in front of you” and the mother takes off running toward him and is soon seen scooping him up into a tight hug while his father gives the pilot two thumbs up.
“The family has got him, they are giving us a thumbs up,” the pilot said.
A man replied, thanking the pilot, who said they could “give us a call anytime.”
The Ohio Highway Patrol said the family was “very grateful” to be reunited with the toddler.
It is unclear when the child went missing or why he ran away.
