Hanover County Sheriff David Hines says Robert Wood Jr. was found in a creek bed in a fetal position around 2 p.m. Friday and reunited with his family. Wood was in good condition but taken to a hospital for treatment.

The boy was found at a quarry about a mile from North Anna Battlefield Park, where he disappeared while on a walk with family on Sunday.

Wood was the focus of an intense search involving thousands of volunteers around the park.
