Lost four-year-old boy found uninjured

August 16, 2010 -- Four-year-old Travis Mitchell was located at approximately 11:15 a.m. Monday morning after an exhaustive 18 hour search in Payson.

Travis was found by volunteer Wyman Kendall searching on horseback in Whiskey Canyon which leads into the East Verde River approximately one mile north of the command center and a half mile west. He was in good spirits and there were no obvious signs of injury.

He was transported from the canyon by a Department of Public Safety helicopter and taken to the Payson Regional Medical Center and then Phoenix Childrens Hospital to be checked and reunited with his family.

He disappeared Sunday afternoon when he failed to return home after playing with friends. 

The Payson Police Department wishes to thank all of those who volunteered in the search.
