ELLENDALE, N.D. (AP) - An 18-month old boy who was reported lost in a cornfield near the North Dakota and South Dakota border has been found unharmed.

Dickey County Emergency Management Director Charles Russell says the boy was found Thursday afternoon, about four hours after he went missing. Russell says the toddler, who was only wearing a diaper, is fine and “just got some sunburn.”

The search for the toddler was challenging because the corn on the farm is about 6 feet tall. The search party included a drone from the sheriff’s office in Brown County, South Dakota, and two civilian airplanes.

The farm is located south of Ellendale.
