More volunteers are out today than showed up Saturday to look for a missing four-year-old boy in Fulton County, Arkansas.

John Montgomery is the Sheriff in neighboring Baxter County, and lent his helicopter to the search for little Caleb Linn.

Montgomery says the search is two-fold: some volunteers and law
enforcement agencies are searching the woods near Cherokee Village.
Others are searching along and in the nearby Spring River.

The sheriff says they're hopeful that Caleb will be found alive, but
at the same time they know the search could have a tragic outcome. The
little boy was last seen on a bridge over the river, so Montgomery says
it's unclear if he crossed the bridge in a particular direction, or if
he fell in the water.

Caleb Linn was last seen around 11:30am Saturday. He was wearing an orange shirt and blue jeans.

Montgomery says the area is quite massive, so there's a lot of ground
search parties have to cover. Volunteers are asked to sign in at Camp
Kia Kima. They'll be given a number and an area to search.

More than 100 volunteers, rescue workers and law enforcement
officials from across the state continued the search Sunday for a
four-year-old boy who went missing Saturday at the Kia Kima Boy Scout
Camp in northeast Fulton County.Fulton
County Sheriff Buck Foley said four-year-old Caleb Linn of Springdale
was with his aunt and several other children Saturday as his aunt was
clearing debris from a bridge over the Spring River at the scout camp.
He was still missing as of 8:20 p.m., according to Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery.
Several
kids asked for permission to return to the cabin they were staying in
and walked up the hill. A short time later, Caleb asked permission to
join them, Foley said.
Caleb’s aunt watched him head up the road to join them, and that’s the last anyone saw of Caleb, Foley said Sunday.
As
word spread of the missing child Saturday, rescue workers and
volunteers poured into the area to help search for the missing child. As
no sign of him appeared overnight, the ranks of those involved in the
search swelled, according to Foley.
“We
had about 70 people here looking on Saturday,” said Foley. “We have
about 100 or more here today. If we don’t find him today, we’ll have
probably 30 more people looking tomorrow.”
The 900-acre scout camp’s terrain isn’t too bad for searchers, according to Foley.
“There
are some hills and hollows,” Foley said, describing the terrain. “There
aren’t too many steep cliffs or problems like that, and the vegetation
isn’t really thick right now.”
The biggest concern Foley had Sunday, a concern shared by other rescue workers, was the river.
“The
river was up pretty high yesterday,” Foley said. “It was moving fast
then and it’s still moving fast now. We just hope he didn’t somehow end
up in the river. We’re searching the woods, hoping to find him.”
Helicopoters
from the Arkansas State Police and the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office
began flying Saturday to aid in the search, with Baxter County’s
helicopter starting, and the Arkansas State Police helicopter taking
over late Saturday night and into Sunday morning.
Dive teams could be seen searching the river Sunday afternoon.
A
press release from the Arkansas State Police describes Caleb as being
three feet, six inches tall and weighing 41 pounds. He has brown hair,
short on the sides and longer in the middle.
At
the time he went missing, Caleb was wearing an orange baseball jersey
with long green sleeves, a short-sleeve orange T-shirt, blue jeans, and
black tennis shoes.
Anyone
who has seen a child near the scout camp matching this description is
asked to call the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office at (870) 895-2601.

HARDY, Ark. —
Searchers held out hope Monday that they would find a 4-year-old boy who
went missing at a northeastern Arkansas Boy Scouts camp over the
weekend, shouting his name, Caleb, as they walked through the woods
along the riverbank where he was last seen.
More than 150 people turned out Monday to search the Kia Kima
Boy Scout Camp for Caleb Linn, who was last seen Saturday at the end of a
bridge where he and several other children were clearing storm debris,
Fulton County Sheriff Buck Foley said.
The children, who are related and who are not affiliated with
the Boy Scouts, were staying in cabins with Caleb’s aunt, Rhonda Wright,
who was watching the grounds while its caretaker was away, said Foley.
According to the sheriff, Wright said five of the nine children who were staying
there decided to head back to the main campsite around lunchtime. Foley
said the kids were about 300 yards away when Caleb said he wanted to
join them. Caleb’s aunt told him to follow the dirt road to the cabins,
and then turned around to continue clearing debris, Foley said.
Investigators don’t suspect foul play. There are other paths that lead from the dirt
road that don’t go to the cabins, and Caleb could have taken one of
those and gotten lost.
“I think he just wandered off,” Foley
said. He also could have fallen in the nearby Spring River tributary,
which was saturated with rain from storms that swept the region.
“The way the water’s running, you wouldn’t hear a splash,” Foley said.
Authorities are proceeding as if Caleb is alive, and the dry weather and moderate
temperatures since Saturday gave hope to searchers, who could be heard
in the woods calling out “Caleb!” then waiting for a reply.
Searchers in boats were checking the Spring River tributary that passes beneath
the bridge where Caleb was last seen. Others took to horses, mules and
four-wheelers to navigate the dirt road and trails. The tributary had
receded by Monday, so divers could get in the water to clear debris from
beneath the bridge and look at images from an underwater camera.
Authorities set a net downstream that could catch a body if the boy did fall into
the river. But it’s possible the body could have passed that point
before the net was put up, said Major Todd Smith, the assistant chief of
enforcement for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.
“It’s like looking for a needle in the haystack,” Smith said. “There’s no way to search the whole river.”
Caleb’s mother and stepfather, who live 150 miles west of Hardy in Springdale,
were at the camp Monday. A couple at a cabin with a stroller and
overturned tricycle out front said they were Caleb’s parents but that
they didn’t want to talk.
“We don’t want to do any kind of interviews,” the man said.

The search
for missing 4-year-old Caleb Linn continues Tuesday at 7:30 a.m.,
according to Fulton County Sheriff Buck Foley.
Sheriff Foley said more
than 300 authorities and volunteers came from several
counties in northeast Arkansas and southeast
Missouri to search for Linn Monday, which includes Craighead, Mississippi, Oregon, Baxter and Izard.

"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," said Sheriff
Foley. "We're really going to start on the river."

Arkansas State Police said 4-year-old Caleb Linn,
of Springdale, was with a group at a 900 acre camp, Kia Kima, located near
Cherokee Village in Fulton County. He was reported missing just after 1
p.m. Saturday.

According to ASP, the group was working on a
clean-up project at a bridge about a half-mile from the main campsite. Five of
the 11 children there left the bridge Saturday morning to return to camp.
Around 11:30 a.m., Caleb asked permission to catch up with the others.

The Fulton County Sheriff's Office was called
at 1:20 p.m. Saturday to report Caleb missing.

Authorities organized a
command center near the bridge where Caleb was last
seen. As of Monday afternoon almost 200 people are searching the 900
acres, Arkansas State Police have a helicopter conducting an air search,
cadaver dogs from Little Rock are also on scene, and divers from the Hardy
Police Department and Craighead County Sheriff's Department are
dragging the Spring River.

According to the Fulton County Sheriff's
Department, there are currently no leads as to where Caleb may be, but the
search is a "rescue mission, not a recovery mission".

Caleb is around 3'6" and weighs about 41
lbs. He has short, brown hair on the sides with longer hair in the middle. When
Caleb was last seen, police say he was wearing an orange baseball jersey-type
shirt, another shirt beneath it with green long sleeves, blue jeans and black
tennis shoes. He will turn 5 years old next month.

Fulton County Sheriff Buck Foley said
anyone who wants to volunteer and search must be able to walk in the
woods, and advises volunteers to bring a personal supply of food and
water.

Directions: Hwy 62 between Salem and Ash Flat.
Take 289 North 2 miles. Turn right on Hwy 175. Go 1.7 miles turn left on
Potowama /Omaha Center Road. Follow signs to Camp Kia Kima.

The family of Caleb Linn said they appreciate the support
of Region 8.

"Let the public know to keep praying. We're
really wanting a miracle and (want) to thank all the volunteers for coming
out," said Linn's great aunt Sherrie Stiles.

If you have seen Caleb Linn or a child matching
this description contact the Fulton County Sheriff's Office at (870)
895-2601.

Carolyn Truex watched a border collie sniff a patch of weeds early
Tuesday along a riverbank near the spot where her 4-year-old great
grandson was last seen a few days ago. She didn't know whether to feel
relief or despair when it turned up nothing.She and her family
have been holding tightly to the hope the missing boy, Caleb Linn, took a
wrong path. Or that he fell into the fast-moving stream but managed to
pull himself out and survive alone in the foothills of the Ozark
Mountains in northern Arkansas.
The alternative seemed too
horrible to talk about, but when two cadaver-sniffing dogs focused on
the same spot near the river where two of his shirts were found later in
the day, it was impossible to ignore.
"You want them to find him,
but you don't want them to find him if he's in the water," Truex said
before searchers found the shirts that her great grandson was last seen
wearing.
Authorities narrowed their focus to the water late
Tuesday and called off the ground search for Caleb, who has been missing
since Saturday. He had tagged along with his aunt and several other
children to help clear storm debris from a bridge at the 900-acre Kia
Kima Boy Scout Camp, which his aunt was looking after while the regular
caretaker was away.
When five of the children left to go back to
the cabin area around lunchtime, Caleb asked if he could follow. His
aunt told him he could, but that he had to stick to the road, Fulton
County Sheriff Buck Foley said. The last she saw of him before she
turned around to resume her work, he said, was Caleb standing at the end
of the bridge.
Hundreds of volunteers turned out since Monday to
help in the search, and divers cleared debris and took underwater
photographs beneath the bridge. The weather since Saturday has been dry
and unusually warm for March, lending hope to Caleb's chances of
survival.
But while calls of "Caleb" could be heard coming from
the woods and along the Spring River tributary Monday, the camp was
quiet enough Tuesday to hear the whir of motorboats passing nearby.
Caleb's
parents, who declined to be interviewed, had travelled from their home
in Springdale, 150 miles west of Hardy, and were staying in one of the
cabins.
While waiting for clearance to join the search Tuesday,
several of Caleb's relatives talked about his fear of frogs, spiders and
anything else scary. Truex described Caleb, the oldest of four
children, as a "very active" boy and speculated that if he had fallen in
the river, he could have found his way out.
Truex, worried about how Caleb's mother, Amanda Muir, was holding up, asked aloud: "I wonder if Amanda got any rest last night."
"If we didn't get any sleep, she didn't," replied one of his uncles, Joey Dawson.
Dawson looked through his cell phone and showed off a picture of his smiling nephew and him.
"You know, that's the last picture we ever took together," he said.
An
hour or two later, he and a handful of relatives were searching for
Caleb, fighting their way along sandy trails and through thorny branches
that would snap back with a thwack as the small group charged on.
At
one point, they came across the tattered rim of a baseball cap near a
wet patch that looked like a child's footprints. They called for help,
careful not to touch what might provide answers about Caleb's
whereabouts.
Word came a few minutes later: He wasn't wearing a
hat. One of Caleb's grandmothers nodded, took a drag of a cigarette and
exhaled. They pushed on, stopping occasionally to swat off ticks and
wipe blood from the cuts that covered bare limbs.
Dawson swam to a small island in the middle of the river, just in case Caleb had gotten stranded there.
"A
whole bunch of nothing," he said when he reached land where the other
searchers were waiting. Said another uncle, Chris Bruner, "at least you
know you searched."

Clothing items worn by a missing 4-year-old Arkansas boy were found
Tuesday afternoon along a river at the Boy Scout camp where he was last
seen, the Fulton County Sheriff said.
Two T-shirts worn by 4-year-old Caleb Linn were found in the Spring River by a search team, Sheriff Buck Foley told CNN.

"We had pictures of the boy when we he went missing. They were the same clothes he was wearing that day," Foley said.

CNN affiliate KATV
reported that the boy was last seen by his aunt on Saturday at Kia Kima
Scout Reservation. He had asked if he could catch up with some other
children who had gone back to a cabin area about 300 yards away,
according to the station.

The search covered about 1,000 acres, Foley said.

The camp is located near the Arkansas-Missouri border about 160 miles north of Little Rock.

No foul play is suspected in his disappearance.

Linn's aunt and mother positively identified the clothes as the little boy's, Foley said.

"The family took it hard," he added.

"We've suspended our
ground search and going to a water search now," Foley said. "We're
searching the whole river until we find him. That's about 8 miles of
water."

"He could still be on
land, but all indications that we got right now are that he's in the
river," Foley said. "If anybody had fallen in this water -- a grown
person could not have survived and got out of this."

Dive teams will resume in the morning for the search, Foley said.

Family: The Body of Missing Springdale Boy Recovered in Fulton Co.

Fulton County, Ark. – The body of a 4-year-old Springdale boy who
went missing at a campground in Fulton County in north central Arkansas
was recovered Wednesday morning, according to his family.

Around 10 a.m., canoers found the boy in the water about a quarter of
a mile away from where they were searching on Tuesday, according to
Fulton Co. Sheriff Kenneth Foley.

“He was still in the river, about 20 feet off the shore on a small,
sandy gravel bar in about two feet of water,” the sheriff said.

The boy’s body will be sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab in Little
Rock for an autopsy. Sheriff Foley says once his office finishes their
report, the case will be turned over to the prosecutor to determine if
any criminal negligence charges will be filed.

Family members say the boy’s birthday is April 3. He would have been 5-years-old.

Cadaver dogs from the Fort Smith area were added to the five-day
search at the request of the family. The Johnson County Dive Team was
also on their way to relive the weary divers Wednesday morning. But
Gloria Denton, who owns the sonar equipment used by the dive team, says
the group was notified that the boy had been found and turned around in
Searcy.

It’s one of the largest search and rescue missions Sheriff Foley has ever been involved in.

“I’m sure we’ve had over a thousand people here searching, we’ve had
helicopters, we’ve had dive teams from all over the state of Arkansas,
cadaver dogs even from Tennessee,” the sheriff said.

The land search for Linn was called off early Tuesday evening after
two shirts Linn was last seen wearing were found inside out and in the
South Fork of the Spring River. Two canine dogs in a boat picked up on
Linn’s scent, according to Sheriff Foley. That helped the crews focus
their search on that section of the water.

Linn went missing on March 24 at the Kia Kima Boy Scout Camp. He was
there with a group of children and family working on a clean-up project
at a bridge site on river, about a half-mile from the main camping area
on the 900-acre property.

Police say five children left the bridge Saturday morning to return
to camp and Linn asked permission to catch-up to the group around 11:30
a.m. He was reported missing nearly two hours later.
More than 100 volunteers and law enforcement personnel from the Fulton
County Sheriff’s Department, Baxter County Sheriff’s Department,
Arkansas State Police, Arkansas Game & Fish Commission, Johnson
County Dive Team, and volunteer fire departments helped with the search
by land, air, and water.
