CBS2’s Tom Wait was there for the happy reunion between Patino and his family.

Patino was reportedly spotted about a block from his home in a neighbor’s backyard.

The neighbor called police who came to rescue the child.

Wait said police had undertaken an exhaustive search for the boy including a helicopter search and rescue dogs.

The family is not sure why Cristobal wandered off but told Wait they were just grateful to have him home.
