Ryan has been reunited with his very grateful family following a search exceeding 4 hours involving numerous  YCSO personnel and volunteers, along with a DPS Ranger and Guidance helicopter crew flying “Rescue 1.” YCSO also very much appreciates the 8 residents/ranchers who participated with our crews as part of a coordinated search.

As we have seen in the past, the sooner a call is made regarding any missing child, the greater the chances of finding that child quickly and safely. Ryan was located about 2.5 miles from his home along a fence line.
