The search for 2-year-old Noah Chamberlin continued in Chester County.

Those with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said they have been assisting the Chester County Sheriff’s Office to find the boy who went missing January 14.

Official volunteers resumed their search around 7 a.m. Sunday.




Officials in Chester County said the use of civilian volunteers in the search had been temporarily suspended..

“He was on a trail when he went missing,” said Blair Weaver, Sheriff of Chester County. “We have searched all around those trails. I wouldn’t be afraid to say there’s hundreds of miles of trails.”

Chamberlin was last seen wearing a gray shirt and blue jeans. Authorities said he was reported missing around 1:30 p.m. Thursday after he was last seen going into the woods behind his home on Short Road in Pinson.

Officials with the sheriff’s office said the child, his grandmother, and his 4-year-old sister went on a nature walk. They took a break and sat on a wood log. The grandmother said she turned to talk to the little girl, but when she turned around, moments later, he was gone.

Crews and friends have been searching around the clock, and officials said they had no plans to stop until they found him.

More than 300 volunteers showed up Friday night to aid in the search but no sign of the boy was found and it was called off around midnight.




Tom Mapes, public information officer for the Madison County Sheriff's Office, said searchers have found no clothing, footprints or blood. Search dogs have not been able to pick up a scent.
