Dramatic video shows late-night moment police found boy lost in bush

A boy has spent hours lost and alone in the cold, thick bush of the Otway Ranges before a dramatic after-dark police rescue.

Video of the moment the boy was found shows the 11-year-old desperately waving his arms in a bid to be seen by police rescue crews in the air.

Boy lost in the Otways.

He was spotted, saved and reunited with his family after almost seven hours by himself – and before the coldest part of the night, which nearby weather stations show fell to single digits.

The boy was fishing with five family members when he got separated and lost about 4.30pm on Wednesday.
