Missing Quebec boy prompts huge search on Mont Rougemont

The Sûreté du Québec has dispatched a helicopter, all-terrain vehicles and two dog teams in the search for an eight-year-old boy who disappeared while hiking with his family on Mont Rougemont, in Quebec's Montérégie region, this afternoon.

Police say the boy was playing hide-and-seek when he went missing. Police were notified at 1:30 p.m. ET. 

Family members and volunteers are also helping in the search for the boy.

Mont Rougemont is 60 kilometres east of Montreal.

More to come.
