The Kern County Sheriff's Office was searching for a child who got separated from his family as they were playing in the snow near Glennville Sunday afternoon.

The child was reported missing at about 4:28 p.m., said sheriff's Lt. Todd Bishop. The family was playing off Highway 155.

Search and rescue crews and an air unit were involved in the search.

Bishop didn't know whether the child was a boy or girl, his or her age or exactly when he or she went missing.
