(Hindman, Ky.) -- First Responders with the Ball Creek and Knott County Rescue Squads, along with Troopers from Kentucky State Police Post 13 in Hazard responded to the Mousie Area of Knott County earlier today to conduct a search for a missing 5-year-old child. The Kentucky State Police received a 911 call shortly after 3:00 P.M. Wednesday afternoon reporting that the 5-year-old boy was in the back yard playing with his dogs when he went missing. Apparently, the child had wandered off into the woods. After a brief search of the area behind his house, the child was located unharmed and in good condition. He was medically cleared by EMS responders from Transtar Ambulance Service and returned safely to his family.
