Moment missing toddler found alive after three days lost in Australian woods

A three-year-old boy was found sitting in a creek and drinking water from his hands three days after he went missing from his family’s rural home.

Anthony “AJ” Elfalak, who has autism and is non-verbal, disappeared from his family’s remote rural property near the village of Putty, north of Sydney, late Friday morning.

The boy was discovered in rugged Australian woodland just 470 metres from his home by a police helicopter after a massive search effort involving hundreds of people.
