COALVILLE, Utah -- Search teams were scouring a remote, private hunting area in Utah on Saturday, looking for a 2-year-old boy missing since Thursday.

Summit County Sheriff's dispatcher Connie Fowers said the boy's father, Paul Wayment, left the toddler alone in his car Thursday morning for about one-and-a-half hours while he hunted on the property, about an hour northeast of Salt Lake City.

Father finds son missing

Wayment told authorities that when he returned to the car, his son, Gage, was missing.

Fowers said another person reported seeing the child in the car about a half hour before the father said he discovered his son missing.

It was raining Friday and temperatures dipped into the 30s during the night as three search teams, two using dogs, looked for the child in the rugged terrain near Coalville.

Fowers said the boy had been wearing blue pajamas and was shoeless.

Several fly-overs, including at least two by helicopters with heat sensors, have yielded no signs of the boy, Fowers said.

Many offering help in search

Authorities also drained a pond near the site where Wayment's car was parked, but turned up no evidence.

Fowers said there is concern about large animals in the area, including cougars and bears. She said people from all over the state have called to volunteer in the search.
