CHESTER COUNTY, Tenn. — Rescue crews found the body of 2-year-old Noah Chamberlin Thursday.
The little boy was found by rescue crews about a mile and a half from his grandmother’s home.
A visibly upset search and rescue crew asked people to keep the family of Noah in your prayers.
They said the family wanted to make sure everyone knew just how much they appreciated everything they did in the search and rescue effort.
However, they asked for space as their family mourned for the loss of the boy.
This was an area they said was on the outskirts of where they had searched.
On Wednesday, the search crews added a few hundred more acres to the more than 1,000 already searched.
The Sheriff was adamant no foul play was involved in Noah’s disappearance.
Noah went missing on Thursday, January 14 as he, his grandmother and sister walked through the woods near their home.
Law enforcement had covered roughly 1,000 acres of land searching for the little boy.
Despite the cold weather and no sign of the boy, the Sheriff in Chester County was adamant since day one Noah was still in the woods and alive.
Representatives from the FBI, TBI, and other local agencies had been involved in the search since the beginning.
Authorities also said they used every form of modern technology that they could get their hands on during the search.
