There’s some encouraging news in the missing Noah Chamberlin case. Madison County Sheriff John Mehr said in a press conference that searchers have found clues indicating the missing Tennessee toddler is still in the woods near his grandmother’s home in Pinson.
“We have some leads that we have recovered,” Mehr said, according to USA Today.
Mehr wouldn’t comment further on what leads authorities have or what searchers found.
Chester County Sheriff Blair Weaver halted search efforts Wednesday temporarily when conditions were “too treacherous and muddy” for volunteers.
Madison County Fire Chief Eric Turner said the ice from Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning made for a dangerous search area. He said it was so slick with ice freezing on paths that people “could hardly walk through there.”

Weaver has informed the public that no family members are suspected of harming Noah Chamberlin and they don’t suspect he’s been abducted, The Jackson Sun reports.
“We have interviewed the entire family multiple times,” Weaver said. “We can find no reason, none whatsoever, to discredit them.”
Law enforcement is urging followers of the case to stop speculating and spreading rumors about the case. There are no arrests about to be made and authorities don’t have reason to suspect anyone in the family is involved in Noah’s disappearance.
Noah Chamberlin went missing on Jan. 14 while on a walk with his grandmother and 4-year-old sister. His grandmother lost sight of him when she had to focus on Noah’s little sister momentarily. Noah and his sister were being watched by the grandmother while their mother went to the store.
