Missing Boy Found Under Bed

Alex OlverPolice with dogs, dozens of neighbors and a helicopter spent two hours searching for a missing five-year-old boy who eventually turned up — asleep under his bed.

A search was launched for Alex Olver — during which 11 people rummaged through his bedroom — after his parents reported him missing on Tuesday evening in Saltash, Cornwall, Britain.

The town mayor, a local football team, troupes of teenagers and elderly residents all turned out to help search.

But Alex was eventually discovered by a sniffer dog safe and well covered by a blanket under his bed.

Alex's mother, Clare Olver, 35, yesterday described him as "a cheeky little monkey — who sleeps like a log".
