Although the child has not been officially identified, authorities are certain it’s Braylen.
What has his mother said?
His mother Dajnae Cox took part in another search for her son on Monday.
The search comprised of around 100 volunteers.
“If you want to just drop him off somewhere, please drop him off to the police station, you can drop him off here. Call my phone,” Cox said.
“I know he’s crying, I know you can’t get him to stop crying. He’s being picky, he’s not eating and even if he’s scared I won’t be mad. Please just drop him off to me. I just want him home. That’s it.”
Lt. Dan Gerken confirmed that the family is being fully cooperative as the search continues.
What have his other family members said about the situation?
Braylen’s family members held a vigil for the young boy and prayed for his safe return, reported NBC24.
Jeffery Holloway, Braylen’s grandfather said: “We’re out here for this prayer vigil to bring him safe and sound back home, or let us know where he’s at. Please.
“Whoever knows where he’s at, please return him or put him in a safe place where we can get him. There will be no problem, just please return my grandson.”
Braylen’s great aunt, Joy Goings, said there had been “so much negativity on Facebook about the mom” but that family didn’t “care about that”.
She said: “We just care about the little baby. We don’t care about what’s going on.
“We just want to come in together and pray and lift her up. We don’t know what the situation is, we just want to keep her in prayer.”
