A Kentucky rescue crew helps bring a 9-year-old boy home safe after being missing for days.

On Sunday afternoon law enforcement and search and rescue crews began looking for Jorden Gorman in Cheatham County, TN. Officials say he ran off from his family's home after getting upset. Monday afternoon the Christian County Rescue out of Kentucky was called to help with search efforts.

The three-man volunteer team arrived Tuesday and began searching the woods near Jorden's home when they spotted him. Jorden was found just past a creek with a blue tarp on an island. One of the men, Matthew Reese, explained: "We startled each other to say the least - and as soon as I recognized the face, I radioed to the other two that 'I got eyes on, hands on, get up here.'"

The Christain County Rescue Team says this is their job and what they're trained to do, they're just glad they could help bring Jorden home. Reese says "That's what all three of us came out here to do to help find Jorden and that's the best feeling in the world when we actually get to succeed in finding him."

It was another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs peaked in the mid to low 90s for our third straight day with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 100° at times earlier on. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. Winds shifting southward overnight will only allow temperatures to fall as low as the mid to low 70s throughout the Ohio Valley; we'll kick off what may end up being our hottest day in years with a morning low temperature of 73° in Evansville.
