Body of missing 2-year-old Pinson boy found in woods

HENDERSON, Tenn. (AP) — The body of a 2-year-old boy missing since Jan. 14 has been found in a clearing in the woods surrounding his home in the Pinson community in West Tennessee.

WMC-TV reports Chester County Sheriff Blair Weaver announced the discovery during a late-afternoon news conference on Thursday. Speaking through tears, Weaver called the boy's death a tragic accident.

Noah Chamberlin went missing during a walk in the woods with his grandmother and 4-year-old sister. The weeklong search included hundreds of volunteers.

Weaver said finding Noah's body was "not the outcome we wanted, but we felt like we got some peace by bringing him home."
