According to staff at the Crazy Corn Maze, the boy was emotional, but finally calmed down when a West Jordan officer put a movie on her laptop for the child, reports CBS affiliate KUTV.

It wasn't until the next morning when a woman called police at 7:45 say she couldn't find her little boy and feared he was still in the corn maze. Because the boy only revealed his age and the names of his brother and cat, the owners went vehicle to auto and throughout the maze, announcing that a lost child had been found, per KSL.

An officer who was there took the boy to the police station after the corn maze closed and officers contacted the state's Child and Family Services.
