Original story:

Police are looking for a 2-year-old little boy who disappeared disappeared in Borden, Indiana, about 20 miles north of Louisville, KY, at around 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

WDRB reports that William G. Roberts was playing in a yard close to a creek with his mother nearby when he disappeared. The mom indicated that she looked away for only a minute and when she looked back, the boy was gone. He was last seen wearing a grey t-shirt with a Gap logo, sandals, and blue jeans. He has short blond hair and brown eyes.

According to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, a dive team, helicopter, and a K9 unit have been searching all afternoon for William. At around 8:56 p.m., they called off the search for the night, but resume on Sunday at 7 a.m.

“A parent reported last seeing the child playing near a creek,” a Clark County Sheriff’s release said.  “The Clark County Sheriff’s Office is utilizing our helicopter, K9 division, and dive team in efforts to locate the missing child. Indiana State Police, Indiana Department of Natural Resources, and Sellersburg Fire Department are assisting in the matter.”

At this time, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office is not asking for volunteers to search the area. The areas they are concentrating may be dangerous to volunteers, and the land is steep. Professionals are currently assisting with the search. However, if anyone has seen William, contact the sheriffs office immediately or dial 911.
