After she had been missing for a day, three-year-old Abby Ladwig wandered out of the woods Tuesday near her family home in northwestern Wisconsin.

Family members have driven from as far away as Lake Geneva to the child’s home in Winter when a neighbor started yelling they had found her. The girl first went missing when she followed her dog, Peanut, out of her family’s yard and into the woods. Hundreds of people took part in the search. Sawyer County Sheriff Doug Mrotek says at times searchers had to crawl through the brush as they looked. Abby had some scratches, a few bug bites and was a little dehydrated. She was taken to a hospital to be checked out, then released.
