Jan. 29– With the discovery of the lifeless body of little 2-year-old Noah Chamberlin in Chester County last week, hearts have been heavy across Hardin County.
Perhaps few hearts hurt more than those of the many Hardin County emergency responders who spent dozens of hours combing woods, fields and trails searching for Noah, praying to find him alive and reuniting him with his family.
Hardin County Fire Chief Melvin Martin, who Chester County officials first called for help and the Hardin County responder who spent the most time on the search, was somber Monday as he recalled the efforts.
“This one was tough,” said Martin. “It’s one you won’t forget.”
