Dyton Logalbo’s mother experienced every parent’s worst fear when her son went missing after playing in the backyard just moments before.
The Logalbo’s backyard backs off onto a large cornfield and, despite his mother’s efforts, there was no trace of the 3-year-old’s whereabouts for over 20 hours.
After contacting authorities, a Wisconsin community amassed over 600 volunteers to help search for the missing boy over the next two days.
According to the Langlade County Sheriff’s Office, Dyton Logalbo was playing in the backyard on Saturday afternoon while his mother was gardening. The last moment she saw him, the 3-year-old had walked just out of sight beyond the stalks of the cornfield.
Dyton’s mother called for her son but received no response. Despite knowing he couldn’t have gone far, he was nowhere to be found when she went into the cornfield looking for him.
The distressed mother ended up calling authorities. Even though Dyton was believed to still be in the cornfield, concern turned into panic when hours turned into days of not finding him.
“I was relatively confident he was in the cornfield,” Sheriff Bill Greening told Inside Edition. “I felt confident once we had enough personnel that we’d ultimately be able to find him.”
