Fitzgerald  -- A family is reunited with their 3-year-old son after his parents reported him missing Tuesday afternoon.  

The search focused on an area along Arbor Cemetery Road about two miles west of Fitzgerald.

Joann Griffin called 911 about two o'clock to report her grandson, Brandon Hutto, missing.

Ben Hill County Sheriff Bobby McLemore called in all his staff and sought help from other agencies to search for the boy. A K-9 unit was involved, and the sheriff called on the Georgia State Patrol to search by helicopter.

The boy showed up at home around 3:30. McLemore said Brandon had been sleeping in a barn near the house. The parents had not looked there.
