DUNN, N.C. — Police called off a search for a missing 2-year-old boy in Dunn Sunday afternoon after emergency crews determined that everyone was accounted for in the community.

Residents told authorities Saturday night that a toddler was missing in the debris of a damaged mobile home park, but no police report had been filed regarding a missing child.

Police ended their search after they determined that no one was missing. One person was killed and another man seriously injured after tornadoes and severe thunderstorms thrashed the area, authorities said.
