State police say the boy was found Thursday by a passing motorist who saw him walking in the woods near the visitors center at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. The child was treated there for minor injuries. Officials say they located his mother, 39-year-old Millville Township resident Debra Wisler, after he gave them her name.
