Over 100 search and rescue volunteers were involved.

Yesterday, he was reported as missing during the afternoon after being on foot with a miniature white fluffy dog.

The dog returned, but he did not, which started a broad search in the surrounding area.

Axle was last seen wearing a blue shirt with palm trees on it and blue gumboots with sharks on them.

Police and his family had concerns for his safety and whereabouts after going missing.
