BALSAM LAKE, Wis. (AP) — Volunteer searchers continue to arrive to help look for a missing 2-year-old boy in Polk County.
Isaiah Theis has been missing from his rural home near Centuria since Tuesday evening. His mother tells Polk County sheriff's deputies her son was last seen in the house playing with his brother. Family, friends and neighbors began a search for the boy after his parents realized he had wandered away.
Law enforcement was called and dozens of volunteers joined in the search until early Wednesday morning. That search resumed again at daybreak.
Sheriff Peter Johnson says searchers are conducting a slower, detailed search of some of the ground they covered Tuesday night. The sheriff is asking that volunteers report to the Polk-Burnet complex in Centuria.
