The kid was found by a landowner near Texas State Highway 249 and then taken to hospital for an examination.

The child followed the dog who went to nearby woods and later returned but the kid did not manage to find the way back. Ms. Ramirez supposed at first that her son could have been kidnapped.
Absolutely heartbreaking. Christopher Ramirezâs mother is pleading for help finding her son. Heâs been missing for more than 24 hours.
"I am asking you all to please help and find my son. I don't know anything about him, and a lot of time has passed. I'm desperate and my heart has a hole in it. Please bring back my son," she told local media.
The searching operations have been carried out by a total of at least 150 people, including law enforcement agents and search crews. According to police agents, the successful outcome was attained due to joint efforts of local and state forces supported by the FBI and national resources.
