ELLENDALE, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say a missing 3-year-old boy has been found safe after an all-night search in southern North Dakota.

Dickey County Emergency Manager Charlie Russell says the boy was found a couple of miles from his home, which is about six miles southeast of Ellendale near the South Dakota border.

Russell tells KFGO-AM (https://bit.ly/2qiP7Pm ) the child was spotted about 9 a.m. Monday near a bridge on the Maple River. The boy was tired and hungry, but otherwise OK.

The boy had wandered away from his home about 8 p.m. Sunday. The North Dakota State Patrol, authorities from Dickey and Brown counties, South Dakota deputies and the Civil Air Patrol took part in the search along with volunteers on all-terrain vehicles.
