Caleb Rios had last been seen Oct. 1 in St. Charles County, Missouri.

Rios had shared with WATE days ago that part of the search for Caleb counted national parks, including the Great Smoky Mountains National Park; as well as the Glacier mountains and the Rocky mountains – due to Caleb’s internet search history.

“Thank you for sharing the story and helping us try and find him,” Eric Rios said Thursday night.
