COOPERSTOWN, N.D. (AP) - A 3-year-old northeastern North Dakota boy who was missing for nearly six hours managed to find safe shelter underneath the family dog.

Griggs County Sheriff Bob Hook says Carson Urness was found about a mile from his Cooperstown-area farm about 2 a.m. Tuesday after a massive search that included law enforcement officers and others on foot, ATV and horseback. A North Dakota Highway Patrol airplane and bloodhound were also brought in to assist.

Hook says Carson’s German shepherd, Cooper, was found on top of the boy, who was face-down on the ground. Hook says the dog was shielding Carson from the cold and rain.

Carson was reunited with his family before he was checked out at a local hospital and released.

Hook tells KFGO radio that Carson didn’t even cry.
