The following news story sounds like something straight out of the "Jungle Book."

A 3 year old boy, named Casey Hathaway, went missing earlier this week, from his Grandmother's home in North Carolina. According to a report from USA Today, Casey was playing in the backyard of his Grandma's house and vanished. Rain and heavy winds didn't help in the search of the young boy, and it took rescuers nearly 3 days to find him. Rescuers were concerned that Casey wasn't dressed well enough to survive the elements. But miraculously he was found un-harmed.

According to a Facebook update, from his Aunt Breanna Hathaway, Casey said he "hung out with a bear for two days."
