(Scroll down for video) A 6-year-old boy went missing on the way to visit his friend.

Kollin Bailey of Herriman, Utah, who fell into an open sewer, was discovered after about two hours by a police dog.

Investigators said that the boy told his parents he was going to a friend’s house with his kite, but his mother soon discovered that he never reached the home of the other child.

A West Valley City Police dog was called to assist in the search and the canine picked up the trail of the boy.

Officers found the boy’s bike and then the dog went straight to the open manhole. Officers found the boy 10 feet deep in the well, police said.

An officer climbed into the manhole and helped the boy get out. He was cold and had a few scratches. He was transported to a hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries.
