FBI, divers, state officials search for 3-year-old boy who disappeared

Hundreds of volunteers, FBI, and divers join search for missing three-year-old Casey Hathaway

A search is intensifying through hard, rugged terrain and cold temperatures for a missing 3-year-old boy in North Carolina, officials said.

Casey Hathaway was last seen Tuesday afternoon playing with two other children in his great-grandmother's yard in the town of Ernul, N.C. He didn't come back into the house.

His family searched for him for 45 minutes before calling 911, Hughes said.

Hughes said his team was concerned about the "extreme cold" as temperatures dipped near freezing, but against all odds, they found him.

"He's good; he's good; he's up and talking; he's already asking to watch Netflix", Casey's mother, Brittany Hathaway, told reporters at a news conference late Thursday night.

Hughes said authorities are treating Casey's disappearance as a missing child case but ask the community to report anything "remotely suspicious".

But, police say, he is in good spirits and has been reunited with his family.

Hathaway is receiving medical treatment for cuts and scrapes at Carolina East Medical Center, said Shelley Lynch, spokeswoman for the FBI Charlotte field office.

The FBI and U.S. Marine Corps from nearby bases at Camp Lejeune and Cherry Point joined the search effort on Wednesday, Craven County Sheriff Chip Hughs announced the second day of the search.

Hundreds of volunteers helped state and federal law enforcement comb the rugged area, joined by canines, aircraft and drones. "Some places it wasn't that thick, but we took our time and you see the next person, and you look and you look and you look".

'The terrain was woods. Volunteers were sent home for the night due to safety concerns.

Sheriff Hughs said they were conducting a missing child investigation and would not say if they believed anything more sinister might have happened. "Additional search assets will return in the morning".

Casey is described as a white male with blond hair and brown eyes.

"We brought Casey to his family, just like we said we were going to do".

The State Bureau of Investigation is urging residents in the Ernul area to check their storage sheds, vehicles and property for the missing boy.
