Rescuers Found 3 Year Old Casey Alive and Well

Young Casey Hathaway wandered into the woods a couple of counties north of where I’m living. He was missing for almost three days through wet freezing nights until rescuers found him tangled in thorny bushes. I’d been following this story on the local news, but hadn’t heard about the bear. The Good News Network reports Casey said he spent some of his time in the woods with a friendly bear who kept him safe.  There’s no other confirmation about the bear besides Casey’s words, but thank goodness for friendly bears!
