The family of young Anthony “AJ” Elfalak, who was found alive after being lost in bushland for three days, believe a blurry image taken from a police helicopter proves he was being cared for by the Virgin Mary.

AJ, who has autism and is non-verbal, was missing in an extremely rugged part of the NSW Hunter Valley before crew on a helicopter spotted him drinking muddy water at a creek on September 6.

His mother Kelly said she firmly believed saints, angels and the Virgin Mary played a role in keeping the boy safe.

“We’re a religious family ... I always say that the Virgin Mary and all the saints and the angels are with my kids every day,” she recently said in a social media video.

“The Virgin Mary is always with us and I knew she was always with AJ.

“If you saw the picture of AJ in the creek, you can actually see the Virgin Mary next to him.”

The boy’s mother says the Virgin Mary can be seen the police helicopter footage.

Ms Elfalak said she believed strongly in the power of prayer.

“I prayed one hour before ... I took the holy communion ... I just had that feeling. I said to myself ‘I’m going to see him soon’,” she said.

A short time later, she learnt he had been found and she collapsed.

“I was in shock. It was such a relief. I can’t describe it. I just couldn’t believe that they found my baby,” she said.

“I’m just so blessed and I’m so grateful.”

Ms Elfalak said her son was doing well after his harrowing ordeal.

“He’s healthy, he’s happy, he only has a few cuts — nothing serious, so he’s doing really well,” she said.

Ms Elfalak said AJ had been “very distraught” when he was found.

“He was scared. He knew something was wrong ... he was holding onto me really tightly,” she said.

“He looked at me and with his eyes ... he just thought ‘Oh my God, my mum’s here’ ... and then he fell asleep.”
"So let us be confident, let us not be unprepared, let us not be outflanked, let us be wise, vigilant, fighting against those who are trying to tear the faith out of our souls and morality out of our hearts, so that we may remain Catholics, remain united to the Blessed Virgin Mary, remain united to the Roman Catholic Church, remain faithful children of the Church."- Abp. Lefebvre
