MARYVILLE — Crews are searching for a 6-year-old boy who was reported missing in East Tennessee.

Media cited a statement from Blount County Sheriff James Lee Berrong in reporting that ground and air searches are continuing to search Tuesday for Kaydon Leach, who is described as 4 feet tall and 60 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.

Berrong says Leach was last seen about 6 p.m. Monday near his home in the Top of the World community. He says the sheriff’s office searched throughout the night and is receiving assistance from an Army Blackhawk helicopter detachment.

The boy was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, gray sweatpants and slip-on shoes.
