Missing 6-year-old Minnesota Boy and His Dog Found by Drone Using Heat-seeking Technology

missing 6-year-old boy from Minnesota and his dog were found Wednesday after hundreds of volunteers — including one who used his own drone with a thermal camera — searched for him for hours.

Ethan Haus got off the bus with his siblings around 4 p.m. on Tuesday near Becker, a city roughly 47 miles northwest of Minneapolis, and ran to play with the family dog, Remington, officials said.

When Ethan and the dog didn’t return home, a massive search ensued, with more than 600 volunteers and numerous law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, working to find the young boy who was outside in temperatures in the low 40s, Sherburne County Sheriff Joel Brott said in a news release.

Steve Fines, of Fines Imaging, was among those trying to help find Ethan. Investigators said he used a drone with heat-seeking technology to find the missing boy — and he did. The drone spotted Ethan and Remington laying in a cornfield, located around a mile east of his home, around 1:50 a.m Wednesday.

“Ethan was cold but was otherwise in good health after being found,” the sheriff said.
