Cristian Ramirez was found 22 hours after he went missing during a family camping trip. And his dad, Renato Ramirez, believes it was a modern-day miracle.

The four-year-old boy went missing near Huntington Lake in Fresno, CA, while playing a game with other children on June 20th. After searching for him, his family called 911, according to a local TV station, KSEE. The family was packing up the truck and getting ready to leave when the kids ran over, but Cristian was not with them.

Cristian Ramirez Was Rescued After 22 Hours

Having your child go missing for any length of time is a parent’s worst fear. However, Cristian Ramirez was rescued 22 hours later and returned to his mom and dad’s arms.

The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office posted on Facebook on the 21st, “Around 8:00 am on Friday, members of the Tulare County Search and Rescue Team found 4 year old Cristian Ramirez. He was about a quarter mile away from where he reportedly disappeared. Cristian is in good condition, he was just tired and hungry. He has been reunited with his parents. There were no suspicious circumstances in this case.”

More than 50 deputies and volunteers participated in the search to find the little boy. “That was the best day of my life to get my little boy back. And for him to be able to hug us back, it really was the best thing I could have ever imagined,” Renato comments about the rescue. We can only imagine the immense relief it was to hold their little boy in their arms again.
