“He is a survival artist,”
Casey had played with two friends in the backyard of the grandparents and had not come back inside. The onset of cold weather to temperatures below zero degrees Celsius increased the concern that Casey was not dressed warm enough. For the search, according to him, helicopters, drones, dog units and divers were deployed, hundreds of Volunteers were involved. On Thursday the Wind and rain had become so strong, that the police asked the volunteers to stay away.

He asked only for water and his mother, the Sheriff. Since there are actually a lot of bears, you may be curious as to whether or not to found the friendly Watchdog maybe even something out.
