Body of missing 2-year-old Tennessee boy found

Posted: Updated:

In a news conference Thursday, the Chester County, Tennessee, sheriff says the body of a 2-year-old boy who has been missing for several days has been found. 

Chester County Sheriff Blair Weaver said Noah Chamberlin's body was found a half mile away from where he was last seen. 

Law enforcement officers from across Tennessee had been searching for Noah since last Thursday. His grandmother said he walked away during a nature walk that day. He disappeared in the Pinson area, near the Madison-Chester County line.

Leaders of the search said Noah's body was found in a clearing that had been searched once before. He was found near some large ditches. 

Weaver said no foul play is suspected, through tears, calling the boy's death "a tragic accident."
