Missing 6-year-old boy found at Great Sand Dunes Park

GREAT SAND DUNES NATIONAL PARK, Colo. — The Colorado State Patrol says a trooper has found a 6-year-old boy reported missing in Great Sand Dunes National Park in southern Colorado.

KKTV in Colorado Springs reports the boy was walking toward a road near the park entrance Monday when he was found.

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

The boy was last seen at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday with other children at a family gathering in the park.

Park officials didn’t immediately respond to a phone call and email seeking details.

The park is 140 miles south of Denver. It has sand 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.
