JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) – Officials are continuing to search for a missing two-year-old boy in West Tennessee who wandered away from his grandmother.

Noah Chamberlin has been missing since Thursday afternoon while walking in the woods in the Pinson community with his grandmother and sister.

The Jackson Sun reports the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has set up a command post at the Pinson Fire Station to assist in the search.

More than 300 volunteers showed up Friday night to aid in the search but no sign of the boy was found and it was called off around midnight.

Tom Mapes, public information officer for the Madison County Sheriff’s Office (TN), says searchers have found no clothing, footprints or blood. Search dogs have not been able to pick up a scent.

The Jackson Sun also reported Saturday night that the Chester County Sheriff says this is still a rescue operation. The sheriff also insisted that foul play is not currently suspected. The sheriff says volunteers will be accepted through seven Sunday morning, but after that, the search will be law enforcement only.
