Missing 6-year-old boy found after search by drone and hundreds of volunteers
Ethan Haus was found a mile from his rural Minnesota home thanks to a massive search and a drone with a thermal camera piloted by a local photographer.
A 6-year-old boy who had been missing for 10 hours in rural Minnesota is home safe thanks to a massive search involving more than 600 volunteers, multiple law enforcement agencies and a drone with heat-seeking technology.
The ordeal began when Ethan Haus wandered off with his dog Remmie after being dropped off by the school bus near his family's home in Becker at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, according to a news release by the Sherburne County Sheriff's Office.
Hundreds of volunteers from the community came together to help find him after the sheriff's office put out the word that he was missing.
The boy was eventually found in a cornfield located a little over a mile from his home at about 1:50 a.m. on Wednesday. The jubilant end to the search came just in time as temperatures had dropped into the 30s.
