2 year old Leroy Toppins has been missing since 7 PM Friday, April 3, 2015 in Washington Court House, Ohio. According to investigators, Leroy Toppins was playing in the yard with his siblings before he was reported missing.
According to 10TV, multiple law enforcement departments have been searching for 2-year-old Leroy Toppins since he was reported missing around 7 p.m. Friday on Ohio 41 in Washington Court House.
Leroy was last seen wearing a navy blue sweatshirt with a teddy bear design, jeans and camouflage boots. He is about 2 feet 3 inches tall with blonde hair and blue eyes.
The area is near the Sugar Creek Stone Quarry and crews are searching that area as well as the nearby woods. A dive team and searchers on boats searched the nearby waters but have not found the boy.
Searchers are also using a drone to try and locate Toppins.
“It is an old abandoned quarry. It has been abandoned for several years,” said Concord Greene Fire Chief Ralph Stegbauer. “Even the creek lines where the volunteers are working are very steep. A lot of brush, a lot of trees and of course this time of year the water is up high, so we have a lot of things in the water.”
The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office reports Toppins’ family last saw him playing outside their house. He was last seen wearing a navy blue sweatshirt with a teddy bear design on the front, blue jeans and camouflage work boots.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office at 740-335-6170.
