Guys, one family in Florida has experienced something really bad and it might leave you scared as well. What happened that on Wednesday morning, their 3-years-old baby boy, Marshal, went missing. Oh, no! The toddler was only wearing his diaper and was autistic.
The family was terribly terrified because they didn’t know whether they would meet their baby again or not. But one thing that kept their hopes alive was their two loyal dogs, Nala and Buckwheat, who also disappeared with the baby boy.
Marshal’s aunt Kayla Stewart told WJHG/WECP said that “we were panicked and all sorts of worst-case scenarios [were] running through their heads.”

Little Marshal is autistic and can’t speak, which could’ve made the search even more difficult
Public Information Officer at the Walton County Sheriff’s Office, Corey Dobridnia, told us that “our expectations going into a search of that magnitude are always to get as many agency members on the ground as possible to aid in the search.” “Minutes are precious when it comes to the search of a child.”
Dobridnia further said that “Marshal was in good spirits when found. A little dirty from the walk through the woods, but unharmed and happy.” “Dogs are loyal creatures. I feel like they probably knew to stay with him when they saw he was alone. Their instincts kicked in. They stayed with the boy and watched over him until he was located.”
One of Marshal’s neighbor Carol Shelton told us that “[His] dogs were right there with him.”. “[We’re] thankful that the pups kind of guided him along, I guess they kept him safe.”
