Sheriff Terry Wagner said a woman driving by called 911 about a boy she believed to be around 4 years old walking barefooted in pajamas near 141st Street. Deputies and state troopers quickly scoured the area, on account of the cold temperatures.

Wagner said the department had its drone flying to help in the search after checking with child care providers in the area and asking people to check outbuildings.
