At 1:30 a.m., Kaven's parents called the sheriff. They said they checked on Kaven and he was not in his bed. They couldn't find him anywhere in the house and one of the doors to the home was open.

There was a large-scale law enforcement presence searching around the home overnight.

They used drones, ATVs, horses and dogs in their search.

The child was found around 9 a.m.

The boy appears to be okay. He will be checked out by a doctor.

Kaven has autism and is non-verbal.

A representative with the Summit County Sheriff's Office says a neighbor found the boy in a car in his garage.

"Prayers do get answered," Ken Pownell told FOX 8 in an interview. "It's proof."

Pownell knows the family. He said Kaven was happy to see him.

Kevin says he comforted Kaven and then yelled to law enforcement that he'd found him.

"It's a miracle," he said.

The sheriff had asked people to check their properties during the search.

Kaven's dad spoke with FOX 8 news.

"We are so grateful for everyone who mobilized immediately and came out to help. We are so grateful for everyone. We know people worked extra shifts. We know they dropped what they were doing. They came out to look for my boy. That means so much," he said choking up.
