JACKSON, Tenn. (WDRB/AP) -- A 2-year-old who has been missing for about a week in Tennessee was found dead Thursday, officials said in a news conference. 

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said searchers found the body of 2-year old Noah Chamberlin Thursday afternoon in a field, FOX17 Nashville reported

No foul play is indicated, according to the sheriff of Chester County. Search groups have scoured the area for the past week.

Chamberlin had been missing since Thursday, Jan. 14, while walking in the woods in the Pinson community with his grandmother and 4-year-old sister.

Use of civilian volunteers in the search was suspended earlier in the week.

Law enforcement from multiple state and local agencies, as well as volunteers from across the mid-South, have been searching around the clock since he was reported missing.

Mapes had said “much prayer” was needed for Noah’s safe return.
