LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The mother of a 7-year-old boy found near a creek days after he disappeared is talking about how he is doing.
Randall Chesser is still at Kosair Children's Hospital where doctors are keeping close eye on him.
Randall's mother, Beverly, says she is so grateful that her son is back with her and he is okay.
Chesser was found cold and wet 45 hours after he went missing from his Washington County home.
Randall has autism and during the search his family was worried finding him would be difficult. But a ground search team from the Mercer County Fire Department found him on Monday afternoon.
Beverly told us Randall is doing great but, doctors at Kosair want to do some more testing. His muscles were weak and he was dehydrated after being without food and water for nearly 48 hours.
Beverly says Randall could be released sometime Wednesday or Thursday. She says she is grateful to everyone who helped look for her son.
"There is a lot of people out there that really do love him," said Beverly Chesser. "Even though they didn't know him personally they understood. They understood and I'd like to thank each and everyone of them."
Beverly says when Randall first saw her his eyes got real big and he said "Momma I want to go home."
