A 3-year-old boy who went missing last Wednesday, October 6 showed up on Sunday, October 10 after being gone for four days.
According to reports, Christopher Ramirez was found by a landowner at around 11:45 a.m. on Sunday close to Highway 249, Texas. The young boy was then taken to Texas Children’s Hospital in The Woodlands.
As per Grimes County Sheriff Don Sowell, Christopher was suffering from dehydration when he was recovered.
Christopher was last seen on Wednesday, October 6 by an elderly neighbor when he followed a family dog down a road close to his home.
Multiple agencies were involved in the search to find him and began combing the woods close to his family home.
Juan Nunez, Christopher’s grandfather, revealed to ABC13 that his grandson had scratches covering his body and face and appeared to be frightened, weak and tired.
Nunez also said that his grandson appeared to have removed his clothes while out in the woods, but there was no evidence that anyone had done him harm.
“They said ‘The child was found alive,’ I believe he said five miles from where he went missing,” one searcher said over a police radio after Christopher was found.
“I believe a citizen located him in the woods. He is alive. He is thirsty. He’s with his mother, and he’s going to the hospital.”
At the time of writing, it remains unknown just where Christopher was during the four days he was missing.
I’m so happy this little boy was found safe and sound, and that he can now go home to his family.
