A trucker has been credited with helping authorities safely return a lost toddler to his family, The Associated Press reported recently.

Kenny Hamilton called authorities after he saw 3-year-old Robert Lee Bennett and the family dog, Sassy, run across U.S. 167 in front of his truck.

The boy had been missing for 21 hours from his home in far southern Arkansas. He was soon found by authorities unharmed in the area, near the community of El Dorado, AR.
