Check out the video to see how Dyton was found after a massive search.
A 3-year-old boy Dyton Logalbo of Deerbrook was playing in the backyard in October 2016 while his mother was gardening. He walked into a cornfield situated behind his home. When his mother looked into, he had just disappeared into the stalks.
Dyton’s mom tried to find him but failed and she had to call the sheriff’s office for help. The news of Dyton disappearing rapidly spread on social media, and in excess of 600 volunteers from the group came to help look for him throughout the following two days.
Sherrif Bill Greening said: “I was relatively confident he was in the cornfield,”
“I felt confident once we had enough personnel that we’d ultimately be able to find him.”
”It was like finding a needle in the haystack.”
“It was very dense and very difficult to search in those areas,” “We had to almost step on the child to find him, it was so thick.”
After 20 hours of Dyton’s disappearing a volunteer searcher, Tom Andraschko, discovered him sitting cross-legged between the stalks. They offered granola bars, juice, and water then he was taken to the hospital for treatment. After the search, Greening praised the volunteers and the individuals who had assisted with the hunt.
“We were walking the cornfield for about two and a half hours and so after that, everything starts to look like corn cobs and corn stalks,” Andraschko told WSAW. “Once we got a little closer you could tell it was arms and legs. So, I was about 20 feet away and that’s when I took off running. I knew for sure it was him then.”
Sherrif Bill Greening said: “He was cold, and wet and scared,” “But overall, he was in good health.”
Greening told the Antigo Times. “It was amazing. I’ve seen a lot of situations like this before and it is truly amazing the amount of caring and compassion that our community provides without even the need for announcements for volunteers. The support they provided was instrumental in [Dyton’s] discovery.”
