A child has been safely returned to his parents after going missing Wednesday morning.
The Teller County Sheriff's Office says a 12-year-old boy left his house in the Woodland Park area on his own early in the morning without telling his family. His mom woke up, and couldn't find her son.
The boy's family followed footprints left in the snow, and when they still couldn't locate him, called authorities.
A reverse emergency notification was sent out, and the sheriff's office said they received a number of tips.
A passerby eventually located the boy walking along Trout Creek Road, about half a mile from his home. The boy was reunited with his family shortly before 9 a.m.
