Grimes County Sheriff’s Deputies, FBI Agents, Texas Game Warden Officers, TDCJ dogs, DPS helicopter crews, and Texas EquuSearch volunteers spent days searching the thick woods near the family’s home.

The sheriff’s office says Christopher was found by a citizen.

"The kind and humble citizen that found Christopher was indeed a special and Guardian Angel that was in the right place at the right time," the sheriff’s office wrote on Saturday. "He is a humble and kind man that did not want to his name mentioned. I had several good visits with him and thanked him for being there. He replied that God told him at Bible study yesterday evening to go look for him and he would find him. This morning the man did just that and the rest is a happy ending to this story."
