Runner finds 2-year-old boy in Michigan woods

MENOMINEE, Mich. (AP) - A man out for a morning run in the woods of Michigan's western Upper Peninsula found a 2-year-old boy who authorities say may have wandered off from home.

The EagleHerald reports ( ) Trevor Vetort made a last-minute decision Wednesday to go for a run at J.W. Wells State Park near Cedar River before heading to class at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College.

The 18-year-old said he found the child crying. It had rained earlier and temperatures were in the mid-40s. Vetort is a part-time ranger at the park who currently is on layoff. He took the child to rangers, who called the Menominee County sheriff's department.

The boy was returned to his mother, who was looking for him with several other people in the yard of their home near the park.
