East Greenwich police responded to a report of a missing man who was allegedly last seen on a dock in the area.

The report lead to a large search effort for 26-year-old Dylan Perreault.

The family said he wandered away from someone's boat after a night of drinking early Sunday morning.

Emergency crews searched the area of Greenwich Cove on Sunday evening.

Perreault was later located alive and well at his boyfriend's house while the search was still underway.

The family told NBC 10 News that it is incredibly grateful of the effort from rescue crews.

"Best news that a mom could ever get in this world is that my son is alive," said Roxanne Perreault.
