He had gone missing a few days prior to being found. As it turned out, help was at hand in those woods in North Carolina. According to The Guardian, 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”.

The three-year-old told his family that “he hung out with a bear for two days.” His aunt wrote in a Facebook post that “God sent him a friend to keep him safe. God is a good God. Miracles do happen.”

Sheriff Hughes said the boy was playing with other children in his grandmother’s backyard, but did not come inside with them.
