Search Scaled Back for Missing Two Year Old Idaho Boy
SALMON, Idaho (AP) — Authorities in east-central Idaho are scaling back a search for a 2-year-old boy who went missing earlier this month during a camping trip with his family. The Lemhi County Sheriff's Office tells KTVB-TV in a story on Monday that the decision comes after a 10-day extensive search in the Stone Reservoir area near the town of Salmon. DeOrr Kunz went missing on July 10. A missing person report was filed at about 2:30 p.m., and crews using a helicopter and search dogs immediately began looking for the boy.
Lemhi County Sheriff Lynn Bowerman says the parents are not suspects. Investigators say they haven't ruled out an abduction by strangers or possible involvement by wild animals.
