BRANSON, Mo. (KY3) - Authorities helped one family find a toddler who went missing for several hours Thursday morning at a Branson resort.

The 3-year-old toddler was found around 9:30 a.m. Thursday with help from multiple agencies.

The Branson Police Department says the toddler wandered off from his family at the Westgate Branson Woods Resort, located in the 2200 block of Roark Valley Road.

Branson police responded to the resort to find the missing child around 7:25 a.m. During the investigation, police discovered security video of the 3-year old wandering, alone, in the resort’s main lobby around 5 a.m.
