The body of Noah Chamberlin, the 2-year-old missing boy from Pinson, has been found.
Chester County Sheriff Blair Weaver addressed reporters Thursday afternoon, and said Noah’s body was located between 1-4 p.m. about a mile and a half from where he went missing on Jan. 14.
“I think we’ve done everything humanly possible,” Weaver said. “We were there and we stuck to it and it just wasn’t meant to be for some reason. We don’t know everything, and we’re not supposed to know everything.”
Authorities said no foul play was involved in Noah’s death, which they called a tragic accident. An autopsy will be conducted, which is standard procedure.
Noah had been missing since last Thursday. He, his grandmother and sister were walking in the woods near Short Road near the Chester and Madison county line when he disappeared. Hundreds of law enforcement officers and volunteers were involved in the weeklong search before Noah’s body was found Thursday afternoon.
On Wednesday, law enforcement officials said they had found evidence in the woods, leading officers to believe the toddler was nearby.
