Robert Wood Found ALIVE!

Volunteers found eight year-old Robert Wood, Jr. this afternoon near the rock quarry next to North Anna Battlefield Park, where some 119 hours earlier, he went missing from his family.

Media reports say he was med-flighted to VCU Medical Center for treatment and was given water and a blanket on the scene before being airlifted. We are awaiting word on Wood's condition.

Several hundred volunteers braved much cooler weather and occasional rain on this Friday to continue the search. Amazingly, reports say Wood ran from some volunteers when he was first found, a testament to his physical condition after five full days in the wild alone.

NOTE: A celebration prayer vigil event is scheduled at 7:30pm tonight at the Doswell Community Center, which is the old Doswell Elementary School.
