State police, sheriff's deputies and several volunteer fire companies formed a massive search team to locate Ryan Bergman on Christmas Day.

A massive search team comprised of state police, sheriff's deputies and volunteer fire companies were able to locate Ryan Bergman Wednesday afternoon within a few miles of his Darien home.
