Casey Hathaway, 3, Found Alive After Disappearing While Playing Outside
He was at his grandma's North Carolina house on Tuesday when he vanished.
A toddler who vanished when he was playing outside at his grandma’s house in North Carolina earlier this week has been found alive.
Casey Hathaway, 3, was found Thursday night by a search and rescue team and is in good health, the FBI's Charlotte office announced.
The boy was playing in the yard of his grandmother’s Craven County home Tuesday with two other children but he “did not come back inside with them,” Shelley Lynch, a spokesperson for the FBI, told People.
“A relative in the home searched for Casey and when they were unable to find him, called 911,” Lynch added.
Authorities said there were no signs Casey had been abducted, but rain and floods had hampered search efforts in the days after and authorities were worried Casey wasn’t dressed properly for the cold temperatures.
Now, he's back home.
“He is with his family. Thank you all for helping,” the Craven County Sheriff’s Office wrote on Facebook.
