For the past two days, authorities have searched the area around the family’s home with no luck, and are now planning to widen the search.
“We feel confident that we’ve covered what we needed to cover. Now it’s important for us to shift to a new location,” Sgt. Reginald Williams said Tuesday night, according to WAVY.
Authorities said they are considering all possibilities in this case.
“We’re considering everything from the child just walking off – though, at 2 years old, probably not able to walk too far – all the way up to and including foul play,” Hampton Police Chief Terry Sult told The Virginian-Pilot. “We’re not ruling anything out until we find the child.”
The FBI has been called in to assist with the investigation.
“We’re turning over every stone,” Sult said, according to WTKR. “We’re doing everything we can to bring this child home safely.”
The boy’s parents are cooperating with police and have spent much of the last two days at police headquarters.
“The parents were cooperating with investigators throughout the night and that’s where they remained at police headquarters for a good majority of the day,” Williams said. “They were there on a voluntary basis and have since been released.”
Anyone with information on the boy’s whereabouts is being asked to call the Hampton Police Division at 757-727-6111.
