FBI Cleveland is offering a reward for information that leads to the whereabouts of an Ohio boy who’s been missing for days, despite large-scale search efforts.
The Toledo Blade reports that 3-year-old Braylen Noble disappeared from the 3400 block of Gibraltar Heights Drive in Toledo at around noon on Friday.
A spokesperson for the Toledo Police Department, Lt. Kellie Lenhardt, said that the child’s mother, Dajnae Cox, said the boy fell from an apartment window located on the third floor, at the Hunter’s Ridge Apartment Complex.
Lenhardt added that Brayden has autism and is non-verbal.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, search crews, including the Toledo police, Toledo Fire and Rescue Department, and Toledo Metroparks officers scoured the area but couldn’t find Braylen, despite searching trash cans, in vehicles, in attics and under buildings.
Private Sterling Rahe, the spokesperson for the Toledo Fire and Rescue Department, said that the search for Braylen has been extensive.
“The extent of the search has been great,” Private Rahe said.
At around 8 p.m. on Friday, search volunteers found a tent near Swan Creek. Inside, they found a blanket that looked like it had blood on it, along with some clothing. The child’s mother told police she didn’t recognize the blanket, ABC 13 reports.
Braylen was last seen wearing a red and white Mickey Mouse shirt.
FBI Cleveland is offering up to a $5,000 reward for information leading to Braylen. Anyone with information should call 419-255-1111 or 911.
