    Canada - James Delorey, 7, Cape Breton NS, 5 Dec 2009


    Seven-year-old James Delorey still missing

    SOUTH BAR, N.S. ó A search is underway today for an autistic boy who wandered away from his home in rural Cape Breton without a winter coat, as an early winter storm hit the island.

    Seven-year-old James Delorey was apparently following the familyís dog when he walked into the woods near South Bar at around 2 p.m. on Saturday.

    Police say the brown-haired boy, who weighs about 60 pounds, was wearing dark jeans, a blue plaid shirt and a grey-coloured vest.

    The temperature was cold early Sunday and winds were gusting and wet snow falling as the storm made its way eastwards to Newfoundland.

    Hundreds of N.S. volunteers search for missing boy

    SOUTH BAR, N.S. -- Heavy snow and strong winds were no help in the search for a young autistic boy missing in Nova Scotia on Sunday, but nor were they a deterrent to hundreds of determined residents who were scouring their community for any trace of the seven-year-old.

    There had been no sign of James Delorey since he was seen Saturday afternoon with his family's dog outside their home in the community of South Bar in Cape Breton.

    Within hours of his disappearance, search-and-rescue officials were knocking on neighbours' doors and asking for permission to search nearby properties in a race against time as the weather took a turn for the worse overnight.

    "It's snowing and wet," said Sgt. Ken O'Neill with the Cape Breton Regional Police. "We're hoping if the weather breaks, we'll be able to use the Cormorant (helicopter) again."

    The story of a missing autistic boy, who authorities feared was not properly dressed to be outside during the season's first snowstorm, prompted a massive outpouring of support from residents in the community, and a long line of cars belonging to volunteers stretched along the highway Sunday.

    "We're all very upset," said James' grandmother, Donna Fraser, when reached at the boy's home, before declining to comment further.

    Please Lord bring this boy home. It is awful cold there and he is more likely to hide than a child without Autism. I am so scared for this little boy.

    I hope he is found soon. I just read James is mute (or he doesn't talk because of his autism, don't know), so he wont be able to call for help!

    Oh dear God - little one I hope you are sheltered somewhere. The winds last night and today were from the north east - nor 'easter as it is commonly called on the east coast. Temperatures are dropping below freezing.

    Come on home little guy.

    According to my folks who live out that way (relatively speaking), yesterday wasn't too bad, but today has been pretty nasty with snow squalls. (However, I find that snow does make the air warmer, so if he can stay out of the wind, it might not be too terrible.)

    I hope he found a hidey hole, and I hope he has stuck by the dog - I recall that 2 year old lost out in the Yukon last August, who survived because he stayed with a stray dog. The dog is James' best chance for warmth and protection right now.

    I know a few people who have dalmatians who say they don't like kids very much, but I'm praying the dog has bonded with the boy enough to get him through this.

    He must be so scared and cold. It's already been too long.

    Search in Cape Breton for autistic boy continues

    <snip>
    2009/12/06 18:56:16

    The temperature held steady at 3 C for most of Saturday night but it dipped to 0 C on Sunday morning and then dropped again to -1 C by early Sunday night as wind gusts approached 70 kilometres per hour.

    The gusts whipped up the wet, heavy snow, reducing visibility to the point that a Cormorant helicopter couldn't get in the air all day.

    "It's making things difficult," Vassallo said. "It's harder to see. People are getting wet and cold ... The time and the weather are big concerns for us."

    The helicopter, equipped with night-vision gear, was dispatched from Canadian Forces Base Greenwood late Saturday night.


    more here on the search

    Prayers for little James, his family & friends, and those who are searching for him.
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
