HACKLEBURG, AL (WAFF) - A 10-year-old boy with Down Syndrome reported missing in Marion County overnight has been found. The family said Kyle Camp was watching television around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday before he went missing. They searched for him until 7 p.m. and then called police. Dozens of volunteers and the sheriff’s department searched for the boy all night. Officials said at one point, at least 150 volunteers were searching for the boy. A volunteer searcher said he followed his family dog along a creek in thick brush and found the dog’s puppies with the boy around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. “I heard the dogs barking again and followed him down there and started hollering for the puppies and I hollered for him and he hollered back. He was in the creek about a half a mile over the ridge,” said searcher Jamie Swinney. Officials said the boy was wet and had no shoes. They think the puppies kept him warm overnight.
Let me get this straight. This down syndrome kid wandered off into the woods and got lost. He most likely would have died if weren’t for 2 puppies whose puppy spidey sense started tingling telling them something was wrong so they went to cuddle with him and keep him warm. Then the mother of the puppies goes and looks for her kids and leads everybody to the missing child. Is there anything dogs can’t do? If this was a cat there is literally no doubt what would have happened. They wouldn’t have dragged this kid back to their basement and chained him up Sloth style and shoved Baby Ruths down his throat for the rest of his life. Dogs FTW yet again.
