Missing 7-year-old boy found at Great Sand Dunes Park

The Colorado State Patrol trooper has found a 7-year-old boy reported missing in Great Sand Dunes National Park in southern Colorado.

Park officials say Caleb Lund was hiking with his family Sunday afternoon when he became separated from the group. The boy was found walking toward a road near the park entrance at about 7 a.m. Monday.

Search crews looked for Caleb all night as temperatures dropped into the 20s. The boy was wearing a jacket but was barefoot when he got lost.

He was taken to a hospital, but his condition wasn’t immediately released.

The park, about 140 miles south of Denver, has dunes up to 750 feet tall, the highest in North America. The dunes cover about 30 square miles, and the park itself contains 235 square miles.
