Preliminary autopsy results from January also listed the cause of the 2-year-old’s death as hypothermia.

The new report lists environmental hypothermia as the cause of death and does not list a contributory cause of death.

Noah’s body was found Jan. 21 in a clearing less than two miles from the home in Pinson where he went missing a week before.

Noah reportedly went missing around 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 14, while on a nature hike with his grandmother and 4-year-old sister in the woods behind their home, according to Tom Mapes, Public Information Officer with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office.

The search for the toddler lasted almost a week and covered around 1,000 acres. Law enforcement officers and hundreds of volunteers endured rain, snow and freezing temperatures.
