6-Year-Old Found Alive After Cold Night Spent Missing In Vermont Woods

View Comments

SUNDERLAND, Vt. (AP) — A 6-year-old Vermont boy is safe and sound following a night in the woods after going missing during a family hunting outing.

Joseph “Jo Jo” McCray, of Arlington, was able to walk out on his own after being located by a search team around 9:30 a.m. Sunday in a wooded area of Sunderland.

Officials say the boy was reported missing Saturday afternoon after failing to show up at a prearranged place after his family spread out while entering the woods.

State police say about 120 volunteers and searchers with state police, the Fish and Game Department and local fire departments assisted in the search that lasted through the night.

Officials say the boy will be evaluated as a medical precaution.
