The outrageous invitation came after the uncle provided more information on the boy’s state since he was discovered about 500m from the family property near Puttty, in the Hunter region north of Sydney.
‘He had a big feed, straight to hospital, check him out, check his vitals and they brought him home,
‘I don’t know what time they brought him home, I was asleep and even the commotion didn’t wake me up.’
The boy’s uncle also thanked family, friends, police and SES for their search efforts.
‘It was just unbelievable. Overwhelming support. It was great,’ he said.

The three-year-old had disappeared from his family’s property on Friday lunchtime, leading to a desperate search with his parents convinced he was abducted.
Theories on how the boy disappeared and survived nights in the bush continued to spread on Tuesday.
Police inquiries are continuing with some senior detectives in the NSW Police Force say ‘there are of lot of things that don’t add up’ including claims of missing CCTV footage from the family property.
His other Kelly was reluctant to comment on the theories about AJ’s disappearance.
‘Oh I don’t know. Just many things. I just concentrated on finding him,’ she told the Today show.
‘We found him, he’s safe. I’m happy and I’d just like to thank the police, the RFS, the SES, all the community, everyone that thought of AJ and prayed for him and my family for him to return safely.’
