BOWLEGS, Oklahoma -- A family is reunited with a missing boy after a search of more than five hours.

The community of Bowlegs came together Wednesday searching from both air and land.

Hours after the search began a crew found 4-year-old Austin Self with the help of his four legged friend.

Family members and rescuers were happy to find Austin with cooler weather progressing through the evening.

Family members say Austin wandered away from his Bowleg home with his dog in search of a playground. Austin was found five miles away from his home.

Besides being a bit cold and hungry, rescuers say Austin is doing OK.

The Seminole County Sheriff's Office says more than 90 law enforcement officers, more than 35 members of volunteer fire departments, and numerous citizens showed up to help find Austin.
