The search/recovery continues for missing 1 year old Bryeon Hunter in Maywood, Illinois. The toddler is considered to be dead as his mother, Lakeshia Baker, and her boyfriend, Michael Scott have been charged with first-degree murder in connection with the little boy’s death. The boy’s mother initially stated that three men attacked her and took her son. However, prosecutors have stated that Lakeshia Baker admitted to beating him with a hanger and belt, and both admitted to leaving the boy’s body near the Des Plaines River in Maywood. Good grief. Bryeon Hunter was the subject of an Amber Alert on April 16; however, after numerous searches has not been found. Police believe the boy was tossed into the Des Plaines River.

Recent flooding has hindered the search, but Maywood’s police chief told NBC 5 that searches have been ongoing every day in various capacities, including the coordinated search scheduled for Saturday morning at 9 a.m.
Independent k-9 trainer Robert Larson has been walking along the river for several days, and says his dog has indicated three strong hits in the same area. A forensics team with the Cook County Sheriff’s Department took soil samples from the area Friday, but won’t know more until the samples are tested.
