The Bandera County Sheriff’s office said a missing 5-year-old boy has been found alive after an all-night search by law enforcement and volunteers.

Sheriff Daniel Butts said Cameron Crumrine was located just after 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday by a search helicopter. He was walking across a field.

The boy’s mother and grandmother said he was doing well despite being wet and having spent the night in temperatures that dipped down near 40 degrees.

Cameron wandered away around dinner time. They suspected he went on a walk with the family’s dogs.

Cameron’s grandmother called him a tough kid and a true cowboy but said they would definitely not be letting him out of their sight anytime soon.
