KAMAS, Utah Boy Scout officials confirmed Tuesday that a missing Boy Scout has been found alive in Utah, four days after he vanished.
Searchers in the area where Brennan Hawkins (search) was located said he had no major injuries, however it could not be confirmed. He was found just before noon near Lily Lake, about five miles northeast of the Boy Scout camp where he was last seen Friday, said Kay Godfrey, director of public relations for the Great Salt Lake Council.
"He has been found, he is alive, and he's in pretty good shape for an 11-year-old boy," Godfrey told The Associated Press. "It's a modern day miracle that he's been found."
Rescuers said Hawkins was being transported by helicopter to a children's hospital in Salt Lake City.
The boy vanished from a Boy Scout camp in the Uinta Mountains (search) on Friday.
Emergency workers said Hawkins must have had to cross a river in order to end up where he was found.
Summit County Sheriff Dave Edmunds said earlier that the boy's chances were good because nights had been warm, with temperatures falling only into the 50s. The area is about 100 miles northeast of Salt Lake City.

See the Boy Scouts do teach boys things. He survived for several days. Good for him. Next time however he should stay put and wait rescue...
Yeah Hoowie! Give that boy his badge!
Thank you Lord and thanks to the rescue team who kept on looking for him!
Praise the lord! I can only imagine his parents joy.
Thank God! I'm sure once his mom was done sobbing with relief and hugging him, she started smacking him upside the head with, "Don't you EVER do that again!!!" :-)
Our God is an awesome God
... and dont cross a river that wasnt there in the morning.
This is such great news! With all the sadness of late, it's great to see proof of how wonderful God is. Thank you Jesus!
I also said a prayer earlier in the day after I watched an interview of the parents. I felt so sorry for the mom especially. She was having a very hard time holding it together. I just felt like he would be found. Never had that feeling before. Not in a long time anyway...Finally some good news.
Boy Scout Ping....Praise the Lord... !!!
Thank God for good news!!!

But Ma, we get a REALLY special, secret merit badge if we capture a snipe! :^)
(Only kidding... way to go, kid!)
Wasn't a boy scout, don't know which badge, but he certainly deserves a badge! I'm a Utahn and am very happy he didn't meet the fate of the kid last year.
Yes, He hears the prayers of His children through Christ.
Thank you, Big Guy!
Re your tag line, the author should have inserted "or the toad"
My sentiments exactly! What wonderful news for a change, I can feel his parents' joy and relief from here.
God answers prayers! God bless the searchers.
