Police in northern Ohio are looking for Braylen Noble, a non-verbal 3-year-old boy who disappeared Friday afternoon from his home in western Toledo.
Toledo police, fire and rescue and Metroparks officers were all out in search of the little boy, last seen wearing a red and white Mickey Mouse shirt. The Toledo Police Department said that they were utilizing drones in the air and dogs, but the terrain around nearby Swan Creek was too steep and treacherous to put a boat in. Instead, searchers combed the creek banks in both directions from the apartment.
Crews suspended their search after dark Friday night, the Toledo Blade reported, but returned to the search Saturday morning.
Braylen’s mother said he fell out of a third floor window at about 12 p.m. on Friday, and she was unable to find him.
Update: Sept 5 at 1:15 PM: K9s are again being deployed in the Swan Creek area near Gibralter Heights Dr. We will…
Officers searched the entire apartment complex and knocked on doors of surrounding buildings.
On Saturday, more than a dozen friends and family joined the search, the Blade said.
