A boy who wandered away from his mother into bushland in New South Wales has been found safe and well.

AAP reports Tyler, aged two, went missing from an auto-mechanic business on Wharf Road in Johns River, near Taree, at about 10.30am on Friday.

An extensive search was stood down when night fell and was set to resume at daybreak.

However, volunteers found the boy in dense bush at about 1.15am (AEST) on Saturday.

He was checked by paramedics and taken to Port Macquarie hospital as a precaution.
