Father still missing after 2-year-old son found wandering alone in woods

A father and his 2-year old son went missing from Grapevine Lake in Texas on Mon. March 6, 2017.  The dad, Matthew Meinert, 38,  took a photo of himself and his son, Oliver, shortly before they went missing at Dent Creek.

The boat was found empty on the banks by a citizen who found a cell phone and called Miner’s family.  The family called the police and they began searching around 6 p.m. Monday evening, reports the Dallas News.  A  group of searchers were looking for the pair, when they came across the boy wandering alone near Trophy Club around 8 a.m. on Tuesday.
