Police in suburban Maywood are still questioning a mother and her boyfriend as they piece together the missing persons case involving her 1-year-old son.
1-year -old Bryeon Hunter disappeared yesterday and his mother told WGN they were ambushed and beaten up before a group of men took off with the toddler.
Police have confirmed with WGN that the child is presumed dead.
For hours, divers and rescuers searched the Des Plaines River near Lake and 1st Avenue as specially trained bloodhounds with the ability to detect submerged bodies scoured the area. Paramedics and firefighters spent the better part of the day searching the water but have found nothing.
The three men baker blames have since been questioned and cleared by police.
The search for the boy will resume tomorrow morning.
