PINSON, Tenn. (AP) – Authorities and volunteers are battling tough terrain and wintry conditions as they continue searching for a 2-year-old boy who has been reported missing in the woods of west Tennessee.

Law enforcement officers from across the state have been looking for Noah Chamberlin since last Thursday, when his grandmother says he walked away during a nature walk.

He disappeared in the Pinson area, which is near the Madison-Chester County line.

Chester County Sheriff Blair Weaver told reporters at a news conference Wednesday that muddy terrain and cold temperatures have affected the search.

No volunteers are being used for Wednesday night’s search because of dangerous conditions.

Searchers are covering an area of 1,000 or more acres. Authorities have said no foul play is suspected.
