Authorities in North Carolina said Thursday, Jan. 24, 2019, Hathaway, the 3-year-old boy who was missing for two days, has been found alive in good health near the home he disappeared from.

    A 3-year-old boy missing since Tuesday night was found safe Thursday night in a wooded area about a quarter-mile from where he went missing, NBC News reported.

    Casey Hathaway is in good health after he went missing while playing with two young relatives in the backyard of his grandmother's home, according to the sheriff's office in Craven County, North Carolina. Police never saw any indication he was abducted.

    "He is good, he's up and talking — he's already asked to watch Netflix, so he's good," said Casey's mother, Brittany Hathaway, at a news conference where she hugged the search-and-rescue captain who found Casey.

    The captain, Shane Grier of Chocowinity EMS, said Casey was cold but able to speak when he was found.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
