Missing boy, Carson Shephard, 7, found in wall cavity at grandma's loft



A seven-year-old boy who went missing and sparked a frantic police search has been found in his grandmother’s loft.



Carson Shephard vanished from the Scottish town of New Cumnock in East Ayrshire on Sunday night, September 19.



East Ayrshire Police issued an appeal around 10.20pm, and some locals spent the entire night searching for the boy.



The force this morning confirmed that Carson has been found "safe and well".



Mum Gemma Glover, 27, from Glasgow, said he had been staying with his grandmother Jacquie McCartney in New Cumnock for the past few months.



She told reporters: "It's such a massive relief.



"Police searched the loft three times last night but came in with specialist equipment this morning.







"I've never felt anything like it, it was crazy. All night I was thinking how cold it was and in my mind I was like 'he's not survived that'.
