Day six of the search for Robert Wood Jr.

HANOVER COUNTY, VA (WWBT) - Entering day six and there is still no sign of the little boy lost in North Anna Battlefield Park.

Rescuers are not giving up hope on finding young Robert, but the conditions outside are about to be the worst its ever been in the search so far; it's much cooler Friday morning than the past few days. On top of that, we had rain last night and stronger winds. Hypothermia is still a concern for rescue crews as they're determined to find Robert.

More signs of late fall/early winter are expected this weekend, however that won't discourage professionals and volunteers from combing the woods. Crews did stop their river search overnight and they'll begin first thing this morning.

Professionals will continue to use thermal imaging and night vision as they search through the deep rugged woods.

There will be another update on the search Friday morning at the new command post at Meadow Event Park.
