    Wow! I can scarcely imagine the sensation of panic that sets in when your child goes missing. And 7pm! The sun was very close to setting and that kid would have been out there for the night potentially, and that would have really changed his odds of survival.

    Glad he was found!! Kids can disappear in a split second and you don’t know which way to go to look. Glad the dog was able to locate the child.
