WASHINGTON, CA (KCRA/CNN) - A three-year-old is safe after spending the night alone in the woods.

Police say Davyn Wilkison wandered away from his family's home in the town of Washington, CA Wednesday.

"You fear the river, you fear random strangers, you fear everything," said mom Harmony Wilkison.

A California Highway Patrol chopper combed the area from above. Davyn said it was the noise from the chopper that woke him up.

He began crying and was heard by a local logger, who found him Thursday afternoon.

"Standing by the tree crying right there. Man and I started crying too," said the logger.
