    @nvfc I like your signature image of the US. Is it possible that I could get one for California?


    Have you heard anything new on Charles? What a cute little boy!

    This is here where I live. Not alot of details on the news. Amber Alert says he was last seen last evening talking to 2 men in a gray dodge durango with florida plates. He was wearing an orange University of Tennessee t-shirt and orange pants. He was not wearing shoes.

    The "suspect" vehicle and occupants have been located and cleared of any involvement in the disappearance.

    What a handsome little guy! I haven't seen anything else reported on him. I am not familiar with that area. Is the are he was at near water (a river or lake)?

    I sure hope he is found alive and well very soon.

    He really is a cute kid.

    He is from Greeneville, TN, which is about an hour north of Knoxville.

    The area he was visiting is actually Watauga Lake, not Watauga, TN and is located in the Butler, TN area. Huge lake......

    Stories are rampant around, not sure what's true or not. He was with a neighbors family, not his own....just out for a picnic at the lake. The family walked to the picnic area and left him there to get more stuff from the car and he was gone when they got back. Our local news said some hikers or campers encountered him on a "trail" near the picnic area and he appeared lost and they directed him back to the picnic area and apparenlty he never made it back there.

    In the link that Lesleegp posted:

    Investigators told News Channel 11 they ruled out a drowning, so the search focused on a possible abduction. Early Monday, the TBI confirmed a lead involving two men in an SUV was not connected to the boy's disappearance. Then around 9:30am Monday, the search ended when crews found the boy's body in the Watauga Lake..

    I wonder why they ruled out a drowning on Saturday since that appears to be what happened. Poor little guy, I was so hoping it wouldn't turn out this way for him.

    You are right Mabel.

    The whole story is strange the more I read and hear about it. There has been zero mention of family

    I was planning on going to help search this evening if he had not been found. You just can't take your eyes off your kids at any time because someone else is a danger to them or they are a danger to themselves.
