MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) - According to the Baxter County Sheriff's office, a missing eight-year-old boy has been found.

Bryan Nash was reported missing around 7:30 Thursday night and approximately 2 hours later was found safe by authorities.

According to Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery, authorities learned that the boy had gone to church with neighbors. Further investigation by deputies revealed that the neighbors had stopped by and talked with the father and received permission to take the boy to church.

The boy's legal name was Bryan Parker but was incorrectly identified to authorities by the father. The father, who was extremely intoxicated, called 911 and falsely reported his son missing around 6 p.m. Thursday from his home at the Lance Way Trailer Park off County Road 30 just east of Mountain Home.

The father, 45 year old William Anthony Nash, was arrested and charged with filing a false police report. He was so intoxicated he was taken to Baxter Regional Medical Center where he became uncooperative and received a second charge of Disorderly Conduct.

David Anthony Nash is currently being held in the Baxter County Detention Center on bond of $500 pending his arraignment in Baxter County District Court on April 14th at 9 am.

The 8 year old boy was turned over to the Arkansas Department of Human Services.

Approximately 15 officers from Baxter County, Arkansas State Police and Arkansas Department of Corrections as well as Arkansas Department of Corrections K-9 tracking dogs assisted in the search.
