  • A five-year-old boy was lost in a swamp in Tampa, Florida.

  • A search for the boy was recorded.

  • You can hear the officers' relief as they hug the baby.

“Hello, my little one. “Let's get you out of the water,” an officer said, holding out his hands. “We were looking for you, honey.”

A five-year-old child was reported missing in Tampa, Florida on Monday evening by her parents, who have since been unable to find the girl at home.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office used a thermal camera to search from the air. It took them less than an hour to find the girl wandering in a thickly wooded swamp area in Tampa, about 1.5 miles from her home.
