A MISSING nine-year-old boy feared dead was found alive and well after he set up a makeshift shelter and spent two days alone in the wild.

Jordan Gorman left his home in Cheatham County, Tennessee, without a coat or shoes as temperatures hit freezing.

Police had only a ‘glimmer of hope he would be found alive’. But rescuers found him at a creek bed where he had made a shelter using tarpaulin.
