MUSKOGEE, Okla. — According to a Facebook post by the Muskogee County Sheriff's Office, on Saturday at 7:00 p.m. they received a call about a missing seven year-old at the Castle of Muskogee.

By the time the call was placed, Riley had been missing for over an hour.

The Castle of Muskogee was closed for the night and every vehicle leaving the grounds was searched.

Deputies say a group found the child in the parking lot and he was safely reunited with his family after being missing for almost four hours.

It is still unclear how he got separated from his loved ones.

The Castle of Muskogee released a statement, in part reading:

This is an unprecedented event in the Castle's history and currently we are relieved to hoave a young child reunited with his family. We are working on a plan to rectify this experience to our guests who were here... Safety and fun in a family environment is the forefront of the Castle's mission.

The staff says any unused tickets from Saturday will still be valid until the end of the season. The last day of the Halloween Festival is October 26.
