An 8-year-old boy Nante Niemi from Wisconsin went camping with his family in the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park and disappeared after seeking to gather firewood for a campfire for his family last Saturday around 1 p.m. Troopers and volunteers had been searching for him since he was reported missing.

Michigan State Police announced that Nante was found by a volunteer and appeared to be in good health. Nante was found around 2:30 p.m. today.

Nante told troopers that he covered up with branches and leaves for warmth and also blanketed the log he was under. He ate clean snow for hydration. According to CBS Detroit, rescue teams searched for this 8-year-old boy in the heavily snowed mountains. More than 150 personnel from MSP and local police agencies covered at least 40 square mile area on foot in a terrain that is hilly and remote with standing water. Aviation, K9, and volunteers searched for the boy from the air to water, and wilderness as weather permits.
