There were at least 50 volunteers -- in addition to rescue and law enforcement personnel -- arriving in Irving Township to search this afternoon. A State Patrol helicopter had arrived, but the boy was found shortly afterward -- cold but unharmed.

The boy had been outside playing with his black Labrador puppy for only a few minutes when his mother couldn't find him.
