A 3-year-old North Dakota boy who disappeared for nearly seven hours was later found under the protective cover of the family’s pet dog, authorities said.
Carson Urness disappeared from his family’s 10-plus acre property in Cooperstown, North Dakota, around 7:30 p.m. Monday after being let out to play while his mom worked inside the home, the boy’s father told ABC News.
“She checked on him again at 7:30 and he was gone,” Carson’s father, Brock Urness, said of his wife, Courtney, who was inside taking care of the couple’s 11-month-old daughter while Carson played.
“She looked around frantically for about 30 minutes and then called me,” Urness said. “And I said, ‘Well, where’s Cooper?’ and she said, ‘Cooper is not here either.'”
