IRONTON (AP) — Authorities are using a helicopter and dogs to search for a missing 3-year-old boy in southeast Missouri.
Temperatures have hovered in the teens since Titus Greyson Tackett disappeared near Ironton. His family told police he was last seen at the family's home after midnight Tuesday, wearing only a diaper. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the boy may have wandered away from their home near the Lake Killarney area of Arcadia Township.
Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper Clark Parrott says a helicopter has been using infrared radar to search a wooded area. But no sign of the boy has been detected.
Iron County Sheriff Roger Medley says police plan to send two dogs into the wooded area before sending in a search party of about 50 people.
