RICHMOND, Va. (AP) ' Authorities say an 8-year-old autistic boy who has been missing since wandering away from his family at a park on Sunday has been found alive.

Hanover County Sheriff David Hines says Robert Wood Jr. was found in a creek bed in a fetal position around 2 p.m. Friday and reunited with his family. Wood was in good condition but taken to a hospital for treatment.

The boy was found at a quarry about a mile from North Anna Battlefield Park, where he disappeared while on a walk with family on Sunday.
