6 Year Old Boy Found in Charlevoix County

Posted: Updated:

A young, autistic boy who wandered away from his mother in Charlevoix county is safe at home again thanks to a team search effort.

The 6 year old ventured off toward Lake Michigan from Fisherman's Island State Park Saturday morning.

Deputies alerted staff at St. Mary's Cement Plant, which was nearby, and they helped search.

An employee spotted the boy playing in the water, and was able to get to him.

The Charlevoix Sheriff's Office says the cement plant staff helped save critical time.

9&10's Christina Vecchioni and photojournalist Eric Davis have more details on the team effort.
