    The Mom looks like I'd expect her to look at this point.

    .
    A property owner has to give consent for searchers to stay. If they didn’t give consent, the searchers would need to leave.

    Totally understand that. The way it's worded makes it sound like the VOLUNTEERS were ALLOWED to stay, but the professionals were not. However I'm sure it's just badly worded.

    I wonder if the search teams know to look up. If he is a curious active climber, he could be in a tree, even at his young age. My youngest at 13 months, was on top of the fridge in the blink of an eye.

    Good thought, I would think they would have been looking up a lot due to the steep hillsides etc.

    As well as calling his name

    Volunteers were searching in between the official searches.

    If he had walked down to the road and either gotten picked up by someone or if he had been hit by a car, driver panicked, hid him somewhere or taken him to a hospital, I feel sure the dogs would have tracked that.
    I hope we'll all be wonderfully surprised at good news, but we've seen bad outcomes (and good ones) before -- we're running out of ideas, be they good or bad.
    Where is that little boy?

    I have to agree with you, my sole called "hinky meter" isn't quite hitting me yet. This seriously seems like an accident or a kidnapping. I'm leaning more towards an accident but I do want to know who Dad was talking to when this all took place. From what I've read, this seems like a very close community where everyone knows everyone. Either way, this could very well end up tragic and I pray I'm 100% wrong. IMO

    I wonder if anyone who he is especially fond of, lives nearby? That he may have tried to go visit? I agree, it's a very rugged area, I used to travel through Salyersville fairly often.

    Exactly -- this didn't and still doesn't qualify for an Amber. Thanks for explaining why it couldn't be done.

    Yah I think the speculation that was missed was the thought that maybe there was suspicion that someone possibly known to the family could have taken off with him.

    with no amber alert that seems unlikely

    Following.
    How far could a nearly two year old get by now ?
    Have they used search dogs ?
    Sorry just started reading. Will go back to the first page now.

    Eta : Yes, dogs were used starting Mon. morning.
    It wasn't stated if there was a scent leading away from the home.

    I wish the state police would give a short presser. After 50 hours of searching it would be nice if they would update the community.

    I've only seen speculation in MSM articles it was Dad's brother, but nothing verified I don't think.

    The terrain looks very tough to search and easy for a small boy to be well hidden! I would think he couldn’t have gone far and could be injured fairly close by. No sounds from him and dogs not finding a scent is worrisome though. :(
    I don’t really know what to think, but I’m so worried for him!

    People in areas like this usually are very united in celebrations, frightening situations, and sad ones. They know that the next time, it could be their own family. It probably didn't take long for nearly all of them to know about this little boy. It's a shame that so many areas aren't like this anymore. My grandparents lived in an area like this -- I visited them every summer when I was growing up, and even I knew most of them. People like this don't tire -- they would probably stay out looking all night. And prayers, prayers, prayers.
    Let's hope they'll all be rejoicing together soon...

    Not if he's used to going barefoot. I always took them off soon as we got home.

    I was thinking the same thing. It all depends on what he's used to. It wouldn't have bothered me at all.
