Authorities say Nathan Billowa walked off from the driveway at his family Pavo, Georgia home early Saturday afternoon.
Thomas County sheriff's investigators, with the help of numerous other local agencies, searched the wooded areas around the family's home for hours.
But that hard work paid off. Authorities say they found four-year-old Nathan in an area near his home around six o'clock Saturday night. They say no ambulances were sent to the scene.
The Leon County Sheriff's Office even lent helping hand in the successful search by providing aerial coverage via helicopter.
