Parents, police, and a slew of volunteers in Clinton County are desperately searching for a missing 3-year-old boy with special needs who went missing Monday.

What Are the Details

Police say the toddler is autistic and non-verbal. He walked away from his home in Watertown Township yesterday (10/9) at about 2 pm. Watertown Township is about 15 miles northwest of Lansing.

The boy was last seen wearing gray and blue shorts and a blue sweatshirt. He has long, curly, dark hair. His family does not believe he was wearing shoes when he left his home.

According to the Clinton County Sheriff's Department, the boy is reported to be a climber and "could be in a tree or any other elevated structure."

Search Enters Day Two

According to media reports, law enforcement officers from several surrounding agencies and numerous civilian volunteers searched for the boy into the night Monday with no success. The search resumed today.

Sheriff's Department Makes a Public Plea for Help

The department is urging residents in Central Michigan to check sheds, outbuildings, bodies of water, and any areas that may serve as shelter. Anyone who spots the boy or has additional information is asked to call 911.

"Please keep the family in your prayers as we move forward," the sheriff's office posted on social media.

John Jones, the boy's grandfather, tells WLNS that the last 24 hours have been unbearable for the family.

"[It's been] hell," he said. "I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy."

Inside the $5.9M Cedar-Clad 'Boardwalk Cottage' on Mackinac Island

This is everything you thought it would be - and more. If you have strolled the whimsical streets of Mackinac Island not far from downtown, you have surely seen the "Boardwalk Cottage". The unique cedar-clad home is a standout for its design and beauty, and it's no wonder considering who owns the home. The home was built in the 1980s by the McIntire family, the previous owners of The Hotel Iroquois on the island for over 65 years. Much like the hotel that they brought to a legendary stage, the 4200 square foot home is considered one the island's finest.

Inside the home, you will find three bedrooms, each with its own sitting area, walk-in closet, and private bath, each overlooking the Straits of Mackinac. The first-floor master suite will have you waking up with spectacular views of Lake Huron. The outside offers amazing space for entertaining and just taking in all the beauty the home is surrounded by.

Take a look inside.
