HENNIKER, N.H. (WHDH) -- A 3-year-old child was found at a farm two miles from where he was last seen Monday afternoon.

Brody Dickinson had vanished into thin air. His dad who was helping at a friend’s home in Henniker, New Hampshire quickly launched a massive search.

“When I couldn't find him, I jumped on the four-wheeler and I was all over the property and then we had 15 people there within 20 minutes and we were walking the property and he was nowhere to be found,” said Ryan Dickinson, Brody’s father.

Hours went by with no sign of Brody. The police arrived to help with the search.

“It was the worst feeling, I wouldn't wish it on anybody,” Ryan Dickinson said.

Police sent out an automated call to the entire area with the boy’s description -- hoping someone would find Brody. And that's exactly what happened at the Aucoin Farm.

“I went back in the house and he was standing next to tractor there crying,” said Raymond Aucoin.

Brody had wandered more than two miles to the farm.

“I asked him if he was lost. I says, ‘you wanna go see your daddy?’ so I guess he was tickled to hear -- go see his father,” said Aucoin.

Moments later, father and son were reunited.

“He was fine. He was talking about the elk which he said giraffes -- he saw the giraffes. Not a care in the world about it,” said Ryan Dickinson.

Brody was checked out by paramedics and is expected to be okay.
