BALSAM LAKE, Wis. (AP) -- A search is resuming for a missing toddler in Polk County.

Justin Theis tells WCCO radio his 2-year-old son, Isaiah, wandered away from the family's rural home near Balsam Lake about 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Dozens of law enforcement officers and volunteers searched Tuesday night for the child until about 3 a.m. Wednesday. The searchers are heading back out to look for the boy early Wednesday morning.

Theis says he hopes his son is taking a nap in the corn fields and will find his way home soon.
