HENRY COUNTY, Ga. -

A 2-year-old boy reported missing was found on Monday in Henry County.

Investigators say Amari Nathan Anderson had last been seen at 313 Preston Creek Drive in McDonough at around 11:00 a.m.

Police said that the mother told them she turned her back for a second and the toddler disappeared.

"Evidently, he is a very inquisitive 2-year-old,"said Sgt. Joey Smith of the Henry County Police Department.

After a four-hour search involving police, fire and K-9 units, the boy was located around 3 p.m. at a neighbor's apartment, FOX 5's Chris Shaw reports.

"When she returned into the home, he was evidently there crying and wanting to go home," Smith said.

Paramedics checked the boy out and found him to be a little hungry, but OK.

"We're going to make sure that every question is answered. How the child left the apartment, and how he was able to be gone. So we're going to try to find out if there was a history or something similar to that. But we're just very relieved that he's safe," Smith said.

The boy was reunited with his grateful mother.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.
