How about some good news for you today? In a world full of negative reports, I was so happy to see this. A missing autistic boy out of Pensacola, Florida was found within 3o minutes by bloodhounds when deputies couldn’t locate the child.

Typically when we hear the word “Florida” it is followed by a bonehead story but this one warmed my heart. The boy’s mother got a phone call with the most terrifying words a mother can hear, “Your child is missing,”. The child unlocked the deadbolt and escaped while his grandmother was watching him and she ran to the bathroom.

After two hours of searching the authorities came up empty but they still had hope. That is when they released the dogs. Bloodhounds tracked down the little boy and found him, alive and well in the woods. Aside from some scratches and bug bites, he seemed to be okay and he was reunited with his grateful family!
