Crews begin sixth day of search for 2-year-old boy

PINSON, Tenn. (AP) — Crews have begun their sixth day searching for a 2-year-old toddler lost in the woods.

Law enforcement and hundreds of volunteers have been looking for 2-year-old Noah Chamberlin since Thursday afternoon, when his grandmother says he walked away during a nature walk. He disappeared in the Pinson area, which is near the Madison-Chester County line.

The Jackson Sun reports Chester County Sheriff Blair Weaver says they haven't given up hope of finding the boy alive.

Madison County Sheriff's spokesman Tom Mapes said law enforcement resumed searching after daybreak on Tuesday after calling off efforts at about 3 a.m. because buses hauling volunteers were needed to take children to school.

Searchers are covering an area of 1,000 or more acres.
