The seven-year-old Japanese boy Yamato Tanooka abandoned by his parents in a bear-infested wood as punishment has miraculously been found after six days.
Broadcaster NHK reported that police said the boy was "in relatively good health."
He was given food and drink and has been taken to hospital, said NHK.
The boy's parents initially said he got lost while foraging for vegetables but it was later revealed his parents kicked him out of their car on a mountain road as punishment for misbehaving.
More than 180 rescuers, including the military, were combing the remote area for a week.
The boy's mysterious disappearance had captured international attention, with many praying for his safe return.
