Police say a 13-year-old boy is back with his family after getting lost in some Garrard County woods.

Officers say the boy was playing with a friend Tuesday in the Pleasant Retreat area.

They say the boy decided to stay in the woods after his friend headed home, but then lost his bearings.

Police searched for the boy for a few hours.

They had called in a helicopter from Lexington to help with the search when the child was spotted walking down a Lincoln County road.

Police say the child had followed a creek around Logan Hubble Park and ended up across the county line.

Officers say the boy was not hurt.
