I have confirmed that this is in fact the person who found 2-year old Jesse Young. The boy on the phone, riding the horse, is 16-year old Seth Best, according to his father. He shared this photo with me. Seth goes to school at Adair High and is a hero in my book @KTULNews pic.twitter.com/lE3ctf97ss— Ethan Hutchins (@ethanahutchins) May 7, 2020
Deputies say Jesse Young disappeared from his family’s property around 11 AM Wednesday and had been missing for more than 24 hours.
The child was found more than two miles from the property he lived on and when found was in good health other than some scratches on his legs.
The search began on Wednesday, and on Thursday grew, with several people showing up on horseback to search the woods.
Family members say Jesse is doing fine and his love of the outdoors just went a little too far.
