Missing North Idaho toddler found

KOOTENAI COUNTY, Idaho. - A North Idaho toddler reported missing around 2:15 p.m. Wednesday has been found at a neighbor's home.

Cooper Irwin, 2, had wandered away from his mother during a visit to a ranch belonging to family members in the Athol area, near the Bunco Trailhead.  Cooper had been playing with his twin brother, Payson, and some other children at the time he went missing.  The ranch property is located in the 16000 block E. Bunco Road.

Patrol deputies, Backcountry Unit deputies and detectives from the Kootenai County Sheriff's Department arrived at 2:30 and began searching along with Timberlake Fire members and neighbors in the rural area. 

The Kootenai County Search and Rescue Unit was contacted and the Spokane County Sheriff's Department provided a helicopter to assist in the search.  As the search continued, searchers were concerned as Cooper was not dressed for the low temperatures expected tonight.

At 5:40pm, the 911 Dispatch Center received a telephone call that a neighbor located Cooper at the intersection of Twete and Good Hope Roads, a location approximately 1 and a half miles north of the ranch property.  Cooper was reunited with his family a short time later and was said to be in good health. 

Cooper's parents said they would like to extend their gratitude to all of those who assisted in searching for their son.  They are very thankful for the efforts of everyone involved.
