On the afternoon of Friday, June 3, a three-year-old boy went missing in the woods in northwest Montana. At just before 5 p.m., Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a neighbor who was concerned that the boy could be missing. Two days later, on June 5, Ryker Webb was found by officials. Amazingly, after two full days alone in the wilderness, he was “in good spirits and apparently healthy, although hungry, thirsty, and cold.”
According to reports, Webb was last seen that afternoon of Friday, June 3. He was playing with his dog in the yard outside his house, just south of Troy, Mont. Deputies were able to determine that, at the time of the call, he’d been missing for two hours already. They immediately dispatched crews to begin searching the area. Ground crews, ATVs, drones, and dog teams were all deployed, as well as a boat crew to search a nearby lake. Two planes were also dispatched to aid in the search but were forced to call their efforts off due to inclement weather.
