Grimes County Sheriff said Christopher Ramirez was in ‘good shape, good health’
The Grimes County Sheriff’s Office announced that a 3-year-old boy who went missing in East Texas on Wednesday was found alive and around noon on Saturday, just five miles from his home.
Christopher Ramirez’s mother and grandmother were unloading their car at the family home Wednesday afternoon when the child went missing and a neighbor saw her chasing a dog across the street, according to Granthshala 26 Houston.
The Grimes County Sheriff’s Office, the FBI’s Houston Field Office, Texas Equisearch volunteers, and other groups searched for Ramirez for four days before he found someone living in the thick woods on Saturday.
Brian Laundry is likely to be found in his ‘comfort zone’, says former FBI agent
“We found little Christopher about five miles from here,” Grimes County Sheriff Don Sowell told reporters on Saturday.
“He was in good shape, good health. He is being checked now. He is on his way to the hospital and he is drinking a lot of water. His mother is with him.”
Grimes County Judge Joe Foth said the forests surrounding the area were so dense that “Davy Crockett would have had little trouble walking through them”.
“I made a crack yesterday, I said we were going to solve it by 2:00 on Saturday,” Fouth said at the search site. “Well, thanks, dear god, we solved this two hours ago and we solved it with the happiest ending we could possibly come up with.”
