A missing 8 year old boy in California was found when searchers blasted music from his two favorite artists:  Ozzy Osbourne and Alan Jackson.

Joshua Robb, who ran away from a school playground in Twin Peaks on Monday to look for his mom and dad, was found in good shape Tuesday afternoon, more than 24 hours after he went missing, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Joshua was found shirtless hiding behind a bush in a densely wooded area of the San Bernardino Forest at around 2:30 p.m., authorities said.

Rescuers were fearful that it would be difficult to find Joshua due to his autism.

Rescuers had said finding the boy could be difficult because he didn't respond well to loud voices or people calling his name because of his severe autism.

So instead, the crews blared the boy's favorite songs -- Osbourne's "No More Tears" and Jackson's country hit "Good Time" -- to lure him from his hiding place, KTLA reported.
