Channel 9’s Peter Overton has described the moment a three-year-old boy who had been missing for three days was found. 

“It was in my head all day,” Peter told Jonesy & Amanda.

“It was the story we all needed”.

Anthony ‘AJ’ Elfalak was reunited with his relieved family on Monday after being spotted by a rescue helicopter following a three-day search in rugged bushland.

He was found sitting in a puddle drinking water from a creek bed by a rescue helicopter which directed ground search crews to his location.

The boy has been reunited with his family after surviving three nights alone in the bush in temperatures which dipped as low as three degrees.

“It was thrilling to be able to give a good news story,” the newsreader added.
