    Authorities searching for missing 3-year-old in Craven County
    Craven County Sheriff Chip Hughes told NewsChannel 12's Kate Hussey three children were playing in the back of a house. Their grandmother was watching them at the time and called 911 for help after only two of the children came inside.

    Hughes said the child was believed to be missing for about 45 minutes when the 911 call was made. Hughes also said the boy is not wearing winter clothing so he is unprotected from the elements as it gets colder.

    The name of the child has not been released. No photo has been released.

    Search underway for missing 3-year-old in Craven County
    A helicopter with heat-seeking technology is being used to look for the boy.

    Volunteers are searching the woods on the ground, and all county resources are being used to search for the boy, Hughes said.

    Sheriff Hughes said they were concerned in part because of numerous sinkholes in the area.

    He also stressed the importance of trying to find the toddler before it gets dark, citing dropping temperatures.

    The Craven County Sheriff’s Office is handling the investigation with assistance from State Highway Patrol, the New Bern Police Department and Pamlico County Sheriff's Office K9s.

    Searchers seek a missing toddler: 'We are not giving up'
    Hughes said the search is a difficult one – the area is densely wooded and spotted with pools of water.

    “Our concern is, we are running of light and it is cold outside. There are so many pockets of water and sinkholes, some of my deputies have come in up to here,” he said pointing to mid thigh to illustrate the depth of the sinkholes.

    Hughes has called his whole department to take part in the search and said he is being assisted by 10-15 NC Highway Patrolmen.

    Highway Patrol provided a helicopter with Forward-looking infrared (FLIR) camera, which picks up heat sources.

    Pamlico Sheriff’s Department and New Bern Police have brought in dogs to assist in the search. Searchers include at least two fire departments, family and local residents who are searching the woods in a grid pattern.

    Hughes said searchers have chosen the area by estimating the speed at which a 3-year-old might be able to walk.

    “My biggest concern are those sinkholes and water,” he said.

    Hughes asked that anyone in the area who sees anything unusual or suspicious call and report it.

    “We’ve got a large area to cover, a lot of woods,”

    Photos: Missing Child

    I looked through the 28 pictures on this page, and was amazed at the number of searchers and the woody area they are searching. The house from where he disappeared is also shown. I would be right in there searching if a child were missing near me. God help those searchers, and may they quickly find this little fellow. Wish we had a picture.

    I looked at the google map you posted. I noticed the address on the photo shown is 200 Toler Road, but I don't imagine there is a street view on google. Thanks so much for the map.

    Oh no this is so sad. I always hate when you hear there is water close by. Does anyone know if there was snow on the ground?

    There didn't appear to be any snow in the pictures I saw. Just miles and miles of woods and what looked like swamps.
