The only things that protected 22-month-old Tyler Jacobson from the frigid overnight temperatures Friday were a T-shirt, a diaper and his favorite buddy a mixed Labrador retriever.
To tell you the truth, that dog is what kept him alive, Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews told The State on Saturday.
The heat from that dog may also be what prevented an infrared equipped search helicopter from spotting the missing child.
Authorities werent told that the childs best buddy was also missing when the 911 call came in to the Kershaw County Sheriffs Department around 8 p.m. Friday night.
