A missing three-year-old is found safe after being on his own for two days in the Montana backcountry. Last Friday afternoon, Ryker Webb was reported missing in rural northwest Montana. He was last seen playing with his dog outside his family's home.
The Lincoln County Sheriff deployed helicopters and drones in an effort to search for the toddler, but poor weather conditions limited their efforts. On Saturday, area temperatures dipped in the low 40s and there was about a quarter inch of rain, but the search continued.
Fortunately, Ryker was found on Sunday afternoon about 2.4 miles from where he went missing. He was reportedly in good condition, but was “hungry, thirsty, and cold.” He was taken to a nearby medical facility for evaluation and reunited with his grateful family.
