Police in Zion are holding a news conference Saturday morning, to speak about the disappearance of a five-month-old boy.
It’s been 3 days since Joshua Summeries went missing, and on Friday, the search took a desperate and disturbing turn as workers sifted through piles of garbage at a nearby landfill.
Volunteers, neighbors and police doubtful the baby boy will be found alive.
“Three days away from the mom without milk and things the baby needs — it’s horrible, it’s real bad,” said neighbor Victor Baltimore.
Earlier Friday, Skycam 9 showed about 20 officers from the Major Crimes Task Force looking for clues in the landfill.
Zion police also asked residents to check their garbage cans. Garbage pickup was delayed until Friday.
The boy’s mother reported him missing about 8 a.m. Wednesday. Neighbors on the 2300 block of Galilee say they had heard the mother fighting with her boyfriend the morning the baby disappeared. The boyfriend was taken into custody the same day.
“We’ve seen him around the neighborhood, but I still don’t know who he is,” Baltimore said.
Zion police are expected to hold a news conference at 10 a.m. about the latest developments.
