Hiking down from Pinnacle Peak on Friday, Orriss walked with another son, 3-year-old Vincent, and a nephew. Julius was running ahead, skipping down the trail.
He rounded a turn and then nothing.
Julius was found nearly 35 hours later about a mile from where he had disappeared — cold, scratched up, but essentially fine.
The water was in a ditch near several homes at the base of the mountain. Julius was trapped under tree branches and crying. He had lost his shoes, was suffering from hypothermia and dehydration. His feet were swollen from the water and cold.
