CHESTER COUNTY, Tenn. — Rescue crews have found the body of 2-year-old Noah Chamberlin. Teams found his body on day 7 of the search, WREG reports.
"It was a tragic accident," Chester County Sheriff Blair Weaver said through tears.
Noah disappeared last Thursday, January 14 in the woods behind his grandmother’s home after she turned to check on his 4-year-old sister.
On Wednesday, the search crews added a few hundred more acres to the more than 1,000 already searched. They admitted their efforts would more than likely be scaled back as winter weather threatens the area.
Sheriff Weaver was adamant no foul play was involved in Noah’s disappearance and there is no criminal investigation underway.
Law enforcement covered roughly 1,000 acres of land searching for the little boy.
Representatives from the FBI, TBI, and other local agencies were 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.
