WINSLOW (KFSM)- A toddler who wandered away from his home in Winslow Thursday (March 19) night has been found, according to authorities.

The 3-year-old boy's family believes he may have gotten out through a dog door, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

The child went missing in the Black Oak Road area before 7 p.m. in east Winslow and the family notified authorities around 7:25 p.m., the sheriff's office said.

The child was found more than four hours later, around 11:30 p.m., a lengthy distance north of his home wearing a long-sleeve shirt, jeans and tennis shoes according to authorities. The boy was found by Arkansas Game and Fish Officer Clay Hungate, according to a Facebook post from the sheriff's office.

The child was immediately checked out by medical crews on scene. Authorities said he was in stable condition and has been taken to Washington Regional Medical Center in Fayetteville.
