More than 4,000 people have joined a search for three children who went missing in east China’s Zhejiang Province.

“My kids were having breakfast when the child next door came to play with them. Then they said they were going outdoors to play.”

The local government has organized a search across the county, involving ten professional rescue teams, amphibious vehicles and divers.

A police helicopter dropped food and warm clothes in the area, hoping the children could find them.

“The valley is quite deep and covered by dense forest. If the children were lost there, we can only search it little by little.”

The children were found in another village on Friday morning, a 15-minute drive from their own village.
