An hour turned into hours. Hours turned into days. In Craven County, North Carolina, a search was underway for little Casey Hathaway. Police dogs helped by sniffing through the icy underbrush. Casey's family tried to have faith, and tried not to fear the worst.
Meanwhile, temperatures were dropping. Craven County Sheriff Chip Hughes started to believe that if Casey were to survive after so long, it would be a miracle.
Then one man on the search team heard a little voice crying out. He followed the cries deeper into the woods, past a freezing pond, and found little Casey Hathaway huddled up in some briars.
"His core temperature was very low, his fingers and all had a bit of frostbite," Sheriff Hughes said.
Casey was rushed to the local hospital where he could begin to regain his strength and reunite with his family.
