Parents grateful for son's safe return

OSWEGO, Ill. Ryan's parents say the toddler is quiet but curious. He slipped out of his home Monday night.

Hundreds of people searched for him -- including police officers, scuba divers and volunteers.

The child was found Tuesday near a pond about a mile from home.

His parents said they are relieved and grateful to have their son home.

Despite feeling tired and dehydrated from his nearly 12 hour ordeal, Ryan is just fine.
