23mo old boy missing

It's been quite a weekend around here. On Friday night a 23 month old boy went missing from his home in our community. Over 250 people came to search. ATVs, horses, search dogs from as far away as Asheville and Maggie Valley,a helicopter, a plane, and lots of prayer and communications were used. I joined a search party from 10am-1pm searching in tobacco, corn, pastures, barns, and ponds for the boy.

UPDATE: Praise the Lord, he was found by some of our church members on a power line near Goshen Road with his dog, Sandy, this evening at dusk. He was hungry and thirsty, but OK. He had wandered off while his mom was feeding dogs in the kennel on Friday.
