After talking to Drakka/Yarra at Scalding Spear, they will ask you to meet them somewhere south of the settlement to look for a missing child. Travel southwest of Scalding Spear to the meeting point. Once there, speak to Drakka/Yarra.

They'll ask you to use your Focus to investigate the area. Scan for clues, and you'll find a trail of footprints. Highlight it and follow the trail. At the end of the trail, you'll find the missing child taking shelter inside the wreckage of a plane.

He says there are machines outside. First, you will need to defeat a Thunderjaw. After this, a Stormbird will appear, and you'll need to take that down as well. Once both machines are down, return to the child and speak to him. After a short chat with Drakka/Yarra, the Errand is complete.
