Rescuers will head back out in the woods of a North Arkansas campground around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday to continue the search for missing four-year-old Caleb Linn.
As of Monday evening, Fulton County Sheriff Buck Foley told the media searchers remained in rescue not recovery mode.
"I've got the cadaver dogs, I've got air evac, I've got Baxter County their chopper for tomorrow, so I don't need that. If I need anything, it will be people with boats," Sheriff Foley told KAIT in Jonesboro. "We're really going to start on the river."
Roughly 300 people have been involved in the search since Caleb's disappearance just before noon on Saturday.
Monday 4 p.m. Update:
The search enters a third day for a boy who went missing over the weekend in Fulton County.
Four-year-old Caleb Linn's family says they last saw him around 11:30 a.m. Saturday. He went missing at Camp Kia Kima near Hardy.
The boy's family was picking up trash in a park when a few of the young boy's cousins headed back to a cabin. A short time later the boy decided to go with them, but couldn't catch up with them. The aunt and uncle did not know the boy was missing until they returned to the cabin and learned the boy never caught up with the cousin.
On Sunday, dive teams focused their search on the waters close to a nearby bridge. Authorities are also focusing on 900 acres of land. Crews have been using helicopters and infrared thermal detecting technology to try to locate the boy through his body heat.
"Well at first I didn't, I didn't expect, the boy might be, maybe he was just lost and the longer this has been going on, the less I think about it," said Fulton County Sheriff Kenneth Foley. "It's tragic. I was hoping we could find him. I hope we can find him tonight with this FLIR team. Hope we find him all well. That's what I'm hoping for."
A team of about 60 emergency responders and volunteers searched the camp site over the weekend, including sheriff's deputies in both Fulton and Baxter counties, as well as the Arkansas State Police.
Caleb was last seen wearing an orange t-shirt, and another long-orange shirt with green sleeves. He was also wearing tennis shoes.
