CHESTER COUNTY, Tenn. - The search continues in Tennessee six days after a 2-year-old boy was reported missing.

According to WMC, 2-year-old Noah Chamberlin was hiking with his grandmother and sister in the woods behind his grandmother’s house. His grandmother said she focused on Noah’s 4-year-old sister for a minute and when she looked back up, Noah was gone.

Hundreds of volunteers and search crews have searched for days, but have found no sign of the little boy.

The lack of evidence has led some people on social media to speculate about his fate.

Sheriff Blair Weaver, with the Chester County Sheriff's Office, maintains no foul play is suspected in Noah's disappearance.

WREG spoke to a man who is friends with Noah's father, Jacob Chamberlin.

"Jacob is a very Christian young man. He's very inspirational as far as believing in the good Lord," Gary Rinks, who manages the truck fleet at Venture Express, said.

Rinks said Jacob and Destiny love both of their children and would not be capable of harming either of them.

In fact, he says Jacob was "frantic" when he learned that his son was missing. Jacob, a truck driver, was in Mississippi when he heard the news.
