Toddler rescued, but search for family continues

Posted: Updated:

ARLINGTON, Wash. -- "I'm from Pennsylvania –Scranton, Pennsylvania. I'm here because I love my family and I'm after them."

Thirty-four-year-old Kevin Ryce has flown 3,000 miles to Washington on a personal rescue mission.

He's gearing up at the Arlington Walmart for what could be the most difficult day of his life Wednesday.

"I'm shopping for boots and gloves for the search for my cousin," said Ryce.

Ryce's cousin Billy Spillers, a Navy chief petty officer, was living on Steelhead Drive in Oso with his wife Jonielle and their four children. They were watching TV when the mudslide hit Saturday, obliterating their street.

Rescuers found 4-year-old Jacob within hours.
