PLANTERSVILLE, Texas — The 3-year-old Grimes County boy who went missing for four days returned home Monday after being released from the hospital.

Christopher Ramirez had a true hero's homecoming with a law enforcement escort home from the hospital.


Ramirez went missing last Wednesday when he chased after a neighbor's dog into the woods and didn't return.

After a four-day search, Ramirez was safely found near the Crown Ranch subdivision when a property owner had just returned home from Bible study decided to look for the child.

In a press conference with Christopher's mother, she said she held him and told him she loved him as soon as he returned to her arms.
