Sheriff Joe Guy says that missing McMinn County, Tenn., toddler Paxton Sluter has been located on a nearby County Road in McMinn County by a citizen assisting in the search.
Sheriff Guy says that the child appears to be in good health but will be transported to a local hospital for an evaluation. His deputies, along with TBI, will continue to investigate the circumstances of the child's disappearance.
"Finding the child just before dark on a cold night is just sort of a miracle," said Sheriff Guy. "We've all got a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving."
