When Di Tommaso heard the boy’s whimpers on Wednesday, he was around two miles away from his home. He said, “I started to yell, ‘Nicola,’ to understand if it could be the child. I heard ‘mamma,’ ”
According to the BBC, Di Tommaso discovered the missing boy at the bottom of the ravine and summoned Carabinieri police commander Danilo Ciccarelli, who went descended to investigate.
Ciccarelli said to a news conference, “I heard clearer cries and expected an animal to come out,”
