Elijah Holbin-Hudson disappeared from a home on Sunset Cove Drive where he was staying as part of a relative placement by Michigan authorities, Port Orange police Capt. Frank Surmaczewicz said.
The boy is believed to be with his maternal grandmother, Laurine Sue Arnold, 49, of Spring Hill, Surmaczewicz said.
