A young child has been reunited with his parents after being going missing on a rural property near Collie.
About 9.55am on Friday emergency services responded to reports of a three-year-old boy missing at a property 15km west of the Collie township, on the Oxley Highway.
Officers attached to Orana Mid Western Police District coordinated a multi-agency response which included the Rescue Squad, trail bikes, PolAir, Dog Unit and divers being deployed from Sydney.
Police were assisted by the State Emergency Service, NSW Ambulance and Rural Fire Service.
About 11.15am - prior to the arrival of specialist police resources - local police located the boy safe and well about 500m from the homestead.
The boy has been reunited with his relieved parents.
Orana Mid Western Police District Crime Manager, Chief Inspector Denise Godden, praised the response of police and fellow emergency services.
