From staff reports Huckleberries Online
Authorities in Kootenai County say a 2 1/2-year-old Coeur d’Alene boy missing since 2:30 p.m. was found this evening at a neighbor’s home. The boy, Cooper Irwin, was the subject of a major search in the wooded area at the end of Bunco Road in northern Kootenai County. He is the son of Kevin and Holly Irwin. The boy disappeared about 1:45 p.m. from a farm house where his family was visiting relatives. The boy was reported missing a half hour later. Area residents began looking for him immediately. The search expanded to include rescuers from the county sheriff’s office, Timberlake Fire District, a helicopter from Spokane, and a canine unit.
