Sarbesh Gurung, 2, disappeared on Tuesday afternoon from an Denton apartment complex off of the 2400 block of W. Prairie Street, close to the University of North Texas campus. According to CBS 11, the little boy’s mother told police she put him down for a nap and when she checked on him at around 2 p.m., he was gone.

Over 100 people helped search for Sarbresh on Tuesday, while authorities checked pot holes, dumpsters, and knocked on neighbors’ doors. The boy’s father went to police headquarters to give a statement, while his mother allowed authorities to thoroughly search their apartment. Still, there’s been no sign of Sarbesh.

According to the family’s neighbor, Anthony Kurialacherry, the boy’s mother stays at while the father goes to school with plans to earn his PhD at UNT. Kurialacherry called them a “wonderful family.”

Police said they haven’t ruled out foul play but since they have no evidence of an abduction, they haven’t issued an AMBER Alert. However, police said Sarbesh wouldn’t have been able to travel alone farther than the area they’ve already searched.

Anyone who sees the little boy is urged to call 911 immediately.
