MOSCOW (AP) — The Russian Emergencies Ministry says a three-year-old boy who spent 72 hours in a Siberian forest after getting lost has been rescued.

The Emergencies Ministry said the boy from the village Khut in the Tuva region in southern Siberia went missing Sunday. A helicopter and about 100 rescuers participated in the search, about 200 kilometers (124.28 miles) north of the border with Mongolia.

The boy was found early Wednesday some 3 kilometers away from the village, when he answered his uncle, who was involved in the search and calling for him. The ministry said he was in satisfactory condition.

Russian news reports said the boy went into the woods, known as the taiga, to follow a puppy when his grandmother got distracted. He only had a chocolate bar with him.
