Casey Hathaway spent two nights alone in freezing conditions after disappearing from his grandmother's garden in Ernul, North Carolina on Tuesday.

"It was a very touching moment", the Hughes said. "The notion that he was sitting in a house or a vehicle for two days and put out there a couple of hours before we found him is absolutely not true". Craven county sheriff Chip Hughes said Casey "did say that he had a friend in the woods that was a bear that was with him".

"He was walking in the woods back there and we can't find him", his great-grandmother told the 911 dispatcher.

'God sent him a friend to keep him safe. God is a good God.

Authorities employed helicopters, drones and K-9 units, Craven County Emergency Management Director Stanley Kite said.

According to Wide Open Spaces, "Black bears are the only species found in North Carolina, and the most recent numbers from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission state there are about 17,000 in the state".

Volunteers had been helping with the search but had been told to stay away Thursday due to heavy rains and strong winds. He told rescuers he wanted some water and his mother.

Casey's aunt, Breanna Hathaway, posted Friday on Facebook that her nephew was home, healthy and smiling ― and had quite the tale to relate about his experience.

Casey Hathaway had a simple explanation after going missing for two days in below freezing temperatures of -6 C without access to food or water.

Some people want to know how a child could survive those frigid temperatures for three days, and some believe Casey wasn't lost, but instead abducted and later placed in the woods.

Casey was taken to hospital to be checked over, with his mother saying he was doing well and had already asked to watch Netflix.
