There is a happy ending to the search for a Boy Scout missing in the wilderness of North Carolina since Saturday. Shortly before 11 am on Tuesday, the boy was found alive.
Park Rangers said he is weak and dehydrated, but in good condition.
Michael Auberry went missing on Saturday, when he vanished after lunch with his fellow Scouts and troop leaders. Dog teams and a plane with heat-sensing equipment had been searching the rugged area around the camp site.
The boy is expected to be reunited with his parents later in the day.
