on martin marietta property. >> it was the news everyone was praying to hear. earlier this afternoon in these woods, less than a mile from north anna battlefield park where robert wood went missing sunday afternoon, the boy with autism was found alive and taken from the woods, brought to a nearby hospital for examination and to be reunited with his family. >> you had the thoughts in the back of your mind. there's no way this child can be out there, no food, no water. minimal clothing and the weather is getting bad. is this going to turn out good? but it did. >> we are told word spread quickly here at the volunteer command center near kings dominion. >> the place went crazy with screams. it was great. it was a great experience. >> how are you feeling? >> i have no words for how great i feel. >> you're my far end, keep your spacing as best you can
5:01 pm
and pay attention. >> it had been another day with hundreds of volunteers coming from, in some cases, hours away to help in the search for robert. >> i have a daughter who is special needs, a little autistic and it pulls my heart string. i couldn't imagine what the parents are going through. if it was my kid out there, i would hope people would do the same thing. >> obviously he has no training and he has special needs. i have five grandchildren, so i certainly wouldn't want to see one of them out there in trouble and nobody helping. >> no one on the team ever gave up and i have to say that there was sometimes that you had to reach down and find that faith that you were going to find him and whether it's appropriate or not for everyone, there is a god. he listens to prayer. and prayers were answered. thank you very much.
5:02 pm
>> a whole range of emotions here in hanover county, caroline county, just on the other side of the interstate where kings dominion is. hundreds of volunteers came, tears, applause, hugs, a great day, a reward for everyone involved here in this search for missing robert wood jr., laura. >> what a great story. we hear he is in good condition. do we know of any injuries that he sustained or anything medically that is wrong with him as a result of being out there for six days? >> not yet. we haven't had that report yet. the sheriff said it was a search team that found him. he was found, we believe, this is what the sheriff was confirming. he didn't say they found him in a fetal position, but they expected to find him in a fetal position and that's how he was found, lying next to a creek near this martin marietta
5:03 pm
quiry. we'll have a live interview in a second, laura. they believe they searched the area before and he wasn't there. joining us now, thank you very much. sheriff tony from caroline county working closely with hanover county. sheriff, first of all, five days later the hope was justified. >> well, you know, never give up, that's it. have faith. have hope. pray, i know the family. i know the grandmother very well. she works for us for a little bit of time. i know her better than i do the mother. i told her every day. i said norma jean, we're going to find robert. >> have you spoken to them? >> i have not gotten ahold of norma because i got the call around 2:00 or so. he said we have a spotting. we spot him. but yes, they found, they think he has been spotted and i came
5:04 pm
from caroline county down. we join together, we were there. we were there and we saw little robert. >> how is he? how was he? >> well, the best thing that we could have seen and which we did see, he was looking at us. you could see those blue eyes looking at you. i said how are you? you could see his eyes move. you knew he was coherent. >> how did he seem to you? >> he seemed to me, and again i'm not a medical professional, but he seemed good. in a condition that he was in for being out there for so long. to me he was in good shape. >> was he in any way able to tell you about the last five days? >> no. other than the fact, when i said robert and i said boo and i knew he knew what was happening. of course med flighted him, so state police helicopter came from chesterfield on up and you could see the reaction because of the loud noise scared him.
5:05 pm
we are so grateful, we praise everyone for all their time and effort that put into it. never give up. sheriff heins, everyone involved. we can't thank everyone enough. >> sheriff of caroline county, thank you for speaking with us. we appreciate it. >> and i appreciate the media. media has helped us. >> thank you very much. it was amazing, laura, when we came down here, there are lighted signs on the streets telling volunteers, head to kings dominion. hundreds of cars we saw a man in our story there, came down from herndon, virginia. so people from all over this area felt the need to come, even on this sixth day of searching and they were rewarded. >> yeah, and the sheriff was talking earlier about the hanover sheriff talking about the woman from alaska who was in town and wanted to join the search as well. so bob, it's been an incredible story and the bottom line is, that little boy is going to go home to his parents and sleep in his own bed.
5:06 pm
aren't they lucky. thank you very much for bringing us up to date. it's an incredible story. it's not november and there is a winter storm warning for areas north and west of the d.c. region. a storm headed our way. will bring rare october snow to parts of maryland, virginia, and western virginia. let's get to gary with the latest. snow, gary? >> i can't figure out any way to not make this happen. to make the snow go away. so it looks like we're going to get some. not so much here in the city, but our northern, western, and north western neighborhoods. you know those favored areas that usually get the snow, those are the areas and the suburbs and places that will get the snow. let me start first with radar. we looked at it on the big screen. this gives you an idea of what is taking place. so far, all of the rain and what is already some snow out there in west virginia is still far enough down to the south and the west that we are dry. eventually, some of this will begin to come in and it will
5:07 pm
start coming in as rain. let me show you the bigger picture as we head over to the radar, because you can already see this storm. it is becoming -- it is already a fairly well organized storm and it hasn't jumped over to the coast to become that big nor'easter. this is over doing it just a little bit. this is a compilation of many radars across the area. it looks like we are getting rain. that's not the case. i do want to show you, there's been a lot of watches and warnings posted and this has been expanded throughout the afternoon and changed over as well. all the pink you're seeing, those western counties in northern western counties. that's a winter storm warning. the blue county and that includes montgomery county, howard county, and back up to carol county, that is all a winter storm watch. so if you are in loudoun county, frederick county, along the counties for 81, northern sections of fauquier county, you are under a winter storm warning. no doubt you're going to get
5:08 pm
more of an accumulation of after snow than we here in the metro area. it won't be too far to the north and west that we will get significant snow. we'll talk more about that coming up in the first look at our forecast. >> you can count on fox 5 and myfoxdc.com for everything you need to know about this winter weather alert. when those flakes flakes start flying, send us your pictures. you can e-mail them to us. testimony in the lumulemon murder trial, two apple store employees who work right next door took the stand today. >> they testified they heard hysterical screaming and two distinctive voices. fox 5's paul wagner is live in rockville with the latest. paul. >> reporter: the testimony this afternoon began with some surveillance footage that was poted up on a screen so the jury could see it. it was footage from inside the
5:09 pm
apple store and it began at 10:00, 10:00 p.m. on the night of march 11. that's when a woman, a manager at the store said she started hearing the commotion. the states attorney gave her a laser pointer and asked her to show the jury where she was standing. you could see her inside the store next to the wall. she then gave a minute by minute account of what she heard. >> yana seen here outside the courthouse after her testimony told the court she heard high pitched yelling and screaming as well as heavy grunting. she was manager of the apple store said she heard one of the women say, talk to me. don't do this. talk to me. the commotion was coming from the wall, the two stores shared on bethesda avenue. under questioning, she then heard someone shout, god help me, please help me. but on cross-examination, she first told police she actually heard, stop, oh god.
5:10 pm
when defense attorney, douglas wood asked her, if you heard someone yell for help, you swrowld gone, right? she replied, who knows what i would have done. no one called for help. why? the state's attorney never asked. >> did you say why you never called 911? >> we posed the same question to ricardo rios who also testified about hearing the commotion coming from the lumulemon store that night. >> ricardo, why didn't you call 911? >> earlier in the day, they were questioned about the tools and where they were kept inside the lumulemon store. both of them said they were never just laying around. they were always put away. the hammer and box cutters and the tool box, the knives and the kitchenette and the merchandise tags. they have never seen the knives in the back room where jayna murray's body was found. both women said it was very important the store was kept in
5:11 pm
immaculate condition. prosecutors believe the tools were arranged by the defendant, brittany norwood before the killing. and not within easy reach as the defense maintains. the state is trying to prove the murder was premeditated. the defense hopes to convince the jury, norwood just lost it during a heated argument inside the store. >> the last sound she could hear coming from that wall were about 10:19 p.m. we should also point out that ricardo was a manager at the apple store that night. he also heard the yelling and the screaming, but he didn't have the same graphic description as shawna had. laura. >> thank you for the update tonight. you can stay with fox 5 for complete coverage of the trial. paul will be providing constant updates. we will link you to his account. that's at myfoxdc.com. you can also get updates

5:34 pm
situations where their kids walk off? >> call the authorities as quickly as you can. it was an extremely impressive operation with hanover county, the number of professionals and their level of training was truly remarkable. and what i think we did was allow them to spend more time in the risky, high probability areas, where we searched the safer areas to search and frankly lower probability areas. that's how it all came to pass. >> thank you so much for coming in and sharing your story, matt, i'm sure robbie's parents are thankful to you and the thousands of volunteers. >> i'm glad i could be here. it's a wonderful weekend. >> indeed it is. police in frederick, maryland, announced charges in connection with a shooting death. the suspect is a former employee. fox 5's john hanrahan worked the story the day the story
