A 3-year old was found safe this morning, Thursday, April 8, 2021, around 9:30 a.m. after a several-hour, multi-agency, search after the toddler wandered off from his family at the Westgate Branson Woods Resort, located in the 2200 block of Roark Valley Rd.

Branson Police responded to the resort on a missing child call at approximately 7:25 a.m. During the investigation, police discovered security video of the 3-year old around 5:00 a.m. wondering, alone, in the resort’s main lobby.

After an extensive search of the property by local, city, county, and State partners, the child was located on the property around 9:30 a.m. unharmed and sleeping in an unlocked resort vehicle. Police officers believe the 3-year old had managed to climb inside the vehicle to escape the elements.

Police do not suspect any criminal wrongdoing.
