HILLSDALE, Mich. — On Friday evening, the Hillsdale County Sheriff’s Department confirmed Jace Landon Lyon had been found safe less than a half-mile from his home.

Hillsdale County Sheriff Tim Parker says Jace Landon Lyon was found “warm, safe and secure” at a local house Friday night. A resident discovered the boy and called police. More than 200 volunteers had been searching for him.

Parker says it’s a good result that happens “when the community comes together” to help each other. The boy was reported missing Wednesday night by his mother at his home in Fayette Township.

Volunteers walked streets and looked in swamps and fields.
