Williams is in a very densely wooded area that's difficult to get to and crews have to get some retrieval equipment to get Williams out.

Williams' mother says he is an Eagle Scout who has special advanced training in wilderness survival.

Before Monday, he had last been seen Saturday afternoon hopping on his bicycle and heading for a swimming hole he has been to many times.

He will soon be reunited with his family.

It's still unclear what led to Williams' disappearance.
