LEADORE, Idaho — Authorities in Lemhi County are looking for a two-year-old boy who apparently walked away from his family’s campsite at Timber Creek Campground near Stone Reservoir.

Lemhi County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Paul Smith told the Idaho Statesman that the boy, 2-year-old Deorr Kunz, Jr., was last seen at his campsite on Friday.

Smith said a missing person report was filed around 2:30 p.m., about an hour after the boy disappeared. Crews immediately began searching.

“It appears like he just vanished,” grandmother Trina Bates Clegg told EastIdahoNews.com.

A helicopter, search and rescue team, search dogs, Lemhi County staff, Salmon Police Department staff and volunteers are all searching the area for Kunz.

Officials said more than 150 people participated in the search Saturday. K9s were used, and several people searched on horses and ATVs.

The boy has blonde bushy hair and was wearing a camouflage jacket, blue pajama pants and cowboy boots.

    Poor baby…the victim of selfish, irresponsible parents and grandparents. They called off the search and said it is because this disgusting family knows exactly what happened to the poor kid and isn’t cooperating. If that’s true they are beyond sick.

      Oh, okay. I personally live here in Lemhi county, I have some words for you. These parents were not irresponsible. It was an accident, as they let him out of their sight for not too long, and he vanished. The only reason that the search was called off, was because the Search and Rescue team/Sheriff office decided to. This terrain is too steep and rugged for a child to go that far in that little of time. 2 miles is a lot of ground in those hills, and they even dived in the reservoir to look in case he drowned. We have done all we can. We only have so many resources here to look for him, and we have exhausted so many of them.
