Boy missing from NSW property since Friday found alive

A three-year-old boy, missing from a property in the New South Wales Hunter Valley, has been found alive.

AJ Elfalak, who is on the autism spectrum and is non-verbal vanished from the family property at Putty on Friday sparking a massive search.

Hundreds of emergency service personnel, SES and volunteers resumed the search of the property on Monday morning.


Fears had been growing that the boy had been the victim of foul play after Police seized a car and declared a crime scene at a nearby property.

AJ was spotted by Polair in a creek on the family property just 500 metres from the home around 11.30am on Monday morning.

Footage from the Police helicopter show him drinking water from the creek.

AJ is suffering from ant bites, nappy rash and is believed to have suffered a fall but is otherwise in good condition.

He has now been taken to Singleton Hospital.
