A 2-year-old has been found after he was reported missing amid an intense heat wave Saturday morning.
The toddler's parents contacted police around 10 a.m. Saturday when they couldn't find their son in their home on Erin Drive in Bow, New Hampshire.
Responding officers began a search and rescue, calling for helicopters and K-9 units from local departments and the New Hampshire State Police. Because of the child's age, heat index of 95 degrees and the terrain, the 2-year-old's safety was at risk, police said.
