The Sheriff's Office announced Wednesday afternoon that Kenneth had been in "remarkably good condition" and treated for dehydration. It was not immediately clear from the officials' statements so far was or how the boy was found.
Kenneth was located around 2 o'clock about 1,800 feet from the family home near a road used for logging or bandwriting after a member of the search crew heard his cry, Kentucky State Trooper told William Petry ABC News. He didn't seem to hurt, Petry said.
Authorities continue to investigate how Kenneth got lost, but there is no evidence to suggest any criminal activity, Petry said.
