Ethan McIntosh, 13, was last seen Monday night around 5:45 p.m. operating an orange tractor but was found around noon Tuesday about 20 miles from where the search began.
The Muscogee (Creek) Nation Lighthorse Police coordinated with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and federal law enforcement officers to find McIntosh.
Patrick Williams, the K9 officer who was part of the group that found McIntosh, said they were able to track his footprints to an area 20 miles from where he was last seen.
"He was wet. It was cold last night," Williams said of McIntosh, who was transported to a local hospital after being found.
The area in Stidham where McIntosh went missing is the same area that his mom, Peggy McGuire, vanished from five years ago, according to KOTV.
She was last seen on Nov. 16, 2015, dropping her son off at school, according to the Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation.
