Hughes said at a Thursday press briefing before Casey was found that the search was being treated as a missing-child investigation and not regarded as being suspicious.

"It's been at least 45 minutes, cause we've been looking all in the woods for him", the caller said.

"Little fellow is happy, and his parents are very happy as well". "He's already asked to watch Netflix, so he's good".

"We are doing everything we can to find this child, utilizing all resources at our disposal and once again, we want these folks in the Cayton Community and Ernul Community to certainly keep an ear out", Hughes said, according to WCTI-TV.

"The terrain was woods". "Some places it wasn't that thick, but we took our time and you see the next person, and you look and you look and you look".

The boy has been reunited with his family and is being cared for by doctors at Carolina East Medical Center, Lynch added.
