UPDATE: Princeton Drake, the 2-year-old in Paw Paw who was missing for just over three hours has been found, according to family. VBC dispatch confirms he was found uninjured.

Drake was found just after 10 a.m.by K9 units at least a half mile from home. VCB Capt. Franks said he is in "relatively well" condition, but covered in mosquito bites. He is being placed in the hands of medical care to be checked out by a doctor.

Currently, there are no signs of neglect and abuse. Charges are not expected to be filed against parents, who believe Drake could have got out of the house by access of a low and accessible doorknob.

By the time Drake was found, an MSP helicopter along with FBI officials were on their way to assist in the search.

Officials confirm the 1-year-old pitbull that believed to have wandered off with Drake was also found by his side.
