Search for missing New London boy has a happy ending
NEW LONDON - A little boy out for an afternoon adventure with his puppy got lost in a wooded area northeast of New London on Monday, triggering a frantic search.
After the nearly 2 1/2-hour search Monday, Elijah Jacobson, 4, was found waist-deep in a pond about a quarter of a mile from his rural New London home. His feet were stuck in the mucky bottom of the wetland. He was wet and cold, but otherwise just fine. His puppy, Izzy, never left his side.
