‘Someone knows where Darnell Gray is’: Reward upped to $11K as search in pond, woods turns up no sign of missing 4-year-old boy

Police said Monday that they have no significant breaks in the case of missing Missouri boy Darnell Gray despite expanding their search to completely cover Jefferson City.

Jefferson City Police Lieutenant David Williams said more than 100 law enforcement and first-responders are participating in the search for Gray, 4. However, Williams has declined to reveal where exactly they’re searching, according to the News Tribune.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Gray was last seen at his apartment on Buena Vista Street between 11 p.m. Wednesday and midnight when he went to sleep. Since then, authorities have combed the woods near Washington Park and drained a local pond in search for the missing 4-year-old.

Williams also announced that $11,000 has been raised for information that leads them to Gray—with $1,000 of the current reward coming from local CrimeStoppers. Previously, authorities were offering $500 for information that leads them to Gray.

Someone knows where Darnell Gray is. We need them to tell us where Darnell Gray is,” Williams said, according to KRCG.

Gray is described as being approximately 3 feet, 10 inches tall, weighing 50 pounds and missing his two front teeth. He was last seen wearing a black and white sleeper but could be wearing a black fur-lined coat, red Spider-Man velcro shoes, Mickey Mouse hat and gloves, and a Black Panther backpack.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information regarding Darnell Gray’s whereabouts should call the Jefferson City Police Department at 573-634-6400, call the CrimeStoppers hotline at 659-TIPS or go to jeffcitycrimestoppers.com.
