The Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) assisted local law enforcement in locating a 3-year-old boy Saturday.
According to the OSHP, Saturday around 1:30 p.m. the boy was playing in his yard when the family dog ran into a wooded area.
The child followed the dog into the woods on Brinker Street SW just east of Sherman Church Avenue SW and never returned.
The Canton Post of the OSHP dispatched several road crew units as well as one fixed-wing Highway Patrol aircraft.
Approximately one hour later, the highway patrol pilot located Braylen J. Tomblin, 3, of 3905 Brinker Street SW in a field about 1 mile from his home.
The pilot directed ground crews to the child's location and rescued him.
The child was taken and reunited with his family.
No word on the dog's whereabouts at this time.
