On Sept. 22 Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) received a call from a panicked mother, according to social media posts.
"My son, who is special needs, who is 6 years old, is missing," the mother can be heard saying. "He's been missing for about 45 minutes, we've been looking for him."
OPP released night vision video of the dense forest, which shows the outline of a small child lying down.
The video shows the outline of several people and a dog on the ground walking toward the boy.
Guided by a laser from the helicopter, officers make contact with the boy and report, "We're bringing him out. He appears to be in good condition."
The pilot signs off: "That's awesome boys."
