ROBBINSVILLE, N.J.— A child reported missing was found in less than ten minutes using drone and thermal camera technologies, WPVI reported.

The child was reported missing on Jan. 17 in freezing weather conditions, according to the report.

“I think it was around 20 degrees, snow-covered in the woods,” said Officer Michael Slininger with Robbinsville Police.

The police department’s drone, which is equipped with thermal imaging cameras, was dispatched to the area. Drone video clearly shows the child’s position in relation to officers participating in the search. The whole incident unfolded in less than ten minutes, according to the report.

“We did have another jurisdiction, West Windsor Township, actually sent their K-9 and they were there pretty quickly in just a few minutes,” Slininger said. “But by the time the K-9 arrived, I had already located the juvenile.”

The child was unharmed, according to the report.
