Kunz’s parent called 911 around 2:30 to report the boy had been missing for about an hour, according to the sheriff’s office.
The sheriff’s office immediately dispatched personnel to conduct a search. Officers from Lemhi County Sheriff’s Office, Salmon Police Department and other local agencies worked with Salmon Search and Rescue to look for the boy, according to the sheriff’s office.
More resources were called in as the search wore on. Search dogs, a helicopter, searchers on horseback and all terrain vehicles were looking for the boy. About 150 people were assigned to the search, and people are working day and night to find the boy, according to the sheriff’s office.
“We've used a huge amount of resources,” Smith said.
The sheriff’s office is discouraging concerned citizens from entering the search area.
