Sunday, 14 Jul, 2019

It's not yet known how he died.

Detective Gary Harvey told reporters that, given how much time has passed, the police were concerned that grandpa and the boys can go far away from Toronto, and at some point reached that has been notified by the border service of the USA.

In the past seven months, there have been five Amber Alerts issued in Ontario.

The missing toddler is described as having black braided hair and brown eyes, and was last seen wearing only a diaper.

A child who lives in the same apartment said someone who looked like Cedrick's step-grandfather took him in the night. He was reported missing Wednesday morning.

"He's not going to get up and walk off on his own", she said.

About 90 minutes after the Amber Alert was first issued, a Toronto police constable and his partner spotted the vehicle on Lake Shore Boulevard near Royal York Road and chose to pull it over.

A source with the Dallas Police Department confirmed the news and Cedric's maternal grandmother said officials told the family he was found dead, though they didn't convey how they knew his body was at the landfill or the suspected cause of death. "He was just the sweetest baby".

KHOU reports that Johnson is the boyfriend of Cedric's aunt.

Police said the grandfather dropped his wife off at a plaza across from Southlake Regional Health Centre, near Davis Dr. and Lundy's Lane at around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. He was taken to jail on unrelated warrants. "In addition, the Dallas Police Department have asked for the FBI" s assistance and they are now helping with the investigation. A press conference was planned for Thursday afternoon.

Police are looking for a man who's black and in his 40s, standing 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing 170 pounds, according to investigators.
