A SIX-YEAR-OLD boy has received hospital treatment after being found trapped underneath his quad bike.
The youngster sparked a major police search after he was reported missing at a quarry near Loggerheads at 1.15pm yesterday.
Worried relatives had joined police from Staffordshire and neighbouring West Mercia in the search for him.
Officers also called on assistance from the police helicopter and search dogs as they combed woodland and the quarry at Trentham Pitts, just north of the A53.
The boy, who comes from the Staffordshire Moorlands and is called ‘Callum’, was later found in a ditch with a leg injury.
A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: “Officers and paramedics managed to get him out from the ditch and he was sent off to hospital to be checked over.”
Police say he had been an experienced rider, despite his young age.
The boy had been on a child’s quad bike, equipped with twin headlights, and was wearing a helmet, overalls and boots.
Officers have thanked the public for their help.
