When the phone rings late at night or early in the morning,
it usually isn't good news.
My great nephew, Issac who is 2, went missing last night on a walk with his Mom.
He was less than 50 feet behind her where almost my entire family
She turned around and he was gone, this was at 7:00 pm.
They searched, the RCMP came, Search and Rescue came, they brought in
the canine unit.
It dropped to -2 overnight.
The frantic phones calls, the tears, the heartache for him,
his parents, my family.
Unbelievably, this is what they think happened, he got distracted, turned a corner,
took a path that headed into a gulley where
he could not hear them calling for him.
16 hours later, he was rescued, safely after spending the entire night alone.
He had walked 3 km and gained about 800 feet in altitude
over the time he was missing.
He hurried to try and find them,
He got lost.
He told his mom and Dad, he slept on the grass.
Can you imagine the story he will tell when he gets older.
Our sweet little boy is back with his sister and parents!
Thank you to all who sent love and prayers for his safe return.
