Moment lost four-year-old and his dog found in New Jersey woods

By Kate Gill,


The moment a lost four-year-old boy and his labrador were found after wandering into the woods in New Jersey has been captured in heartwarming bodycam footage.

The frightened and sobbing little boy, whose name has not been disclosed, became lost after he and his dog wandered almost half a mile away from his home in Atlantic City on Wednesday evening.

New Jersey State Police troopers’ search and rescue mission captured officers running through the forest before one yells out: “I got him, I got him.”

The scared four-year-old is heard repeatedly crying: “I lost my shoe, I lost my shoe,” as Trooper Ian Emmi picks him up and comforts him.

Moments later the youngster is reunited with his mother.
