7-Year Old Found Unharmed

The Parents of 7-year old Dillon Mallory are breathing easier tonight. He disappeared from his home on Nease Road in Effingham County this afternoon.

Dillon is autistic and cannot speak, so he couldn't answer when searchers called for him. They finally found him swimming about a mile down the road in a neighbor's swimming pool.

Dillon's father said "It was the scariest phone call that he ever received. I jumped in my truck and the Sheriff had an impressive search going on. It was unbelievable...the State of Georgia.

Dillon returned home a little damp, but, otherwise, unharmed.
