Authorities search for missing 4-year-old boy near Santa Paula

Ventura County sheriff's deputies are searching a rural area north of Santa Paula on Monday for a missing 4-year-old boy, who they fear may be wandering alone in scorching temperatures.

The child was reported missing around 10 a.m. from his residence on Highway 150 on the outskirts of the city.

The search was unfolding from the ground and air -- with deputies and dogs -- near hills and agricultural fields off Ojai Road.

Authorities are concerned because temperatures are expected to be near triple digits Monday afternoon.
