CLERMONT COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - Ohio State Highway Patrol officials said a 7-year-old boy that was reported missing at Stonelick State Park is safe with his mom.

"As far as we know, he's back with his mom and he was never there anyway," officials said.

The park is located in Clermont County.

The boy was said to be last seen around 5 p.m. when he was swimming.

"We were swimming with one of my... with my kids and one of their friends and we can not find him anywhere," a caller said to a 911 dispatcher.

Rescue teams converged on Stonelick Lake from three different counties and several different departments and an hour into the search on the water, word came in the boy may have been picked up by his mother from the lake.

"We did locate the child with the grandmother in Clinton County and to confirm that it was the same child. We had the grandmother transport the child to Clinton County Sheriff's Office and had a picture taken next to a sheriff's deputy," Capt. Jeff Sellars said.

The 7-year-old is safe and home with family.
