A 10-YEAR-OLD boy missing at Cambroon was located safe and well by search crews around 12.25am this morning.

A land and air search was conducted at Cambroon, in the Booloumba camp area, on walking tracks and bush land known as the Gold Mine and Cascades.

The boy, along with four other children and two women had been walking in the area when he became lost around 5pm Wednesday.
