A command post has been set up at the Fourth District Police Dept. as police and the FBI continue to search for a missing Cleveland boy.
3-year-old Emilliano N. Terry was last seen around 5 p.m. Sunday at Kossuth Park and East 121 and Williams Avenue.
The FBI and Cleveland Police held a news conference Monday to update the very latest in the search.
According to police a dog from their K-9 unit did indeed pick up the child's scent in the park but the boy was nowhere to be found. They also say the investigation is being handled as a missing persons case.
Emilliano is a black male, 30" tall and approximately 30 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray Northface coat, a red and black sweater, blue jeans and blue and black Champion tennis shoes.
Officers continue to expand the search radius and other search locations have been added.
His mother, 20-year-old Camilia T. Terry, said that she was at the park with her children and had taken her eyes off of Emilliano to tend to one of her three children and once she looked for him, he was missing. One of the other children, a five-year-old, said that Emilliano may have gotten into a black Saab or similar vehicle with someone; but at this time that has not yet been verified.
19 Action News Reporter Ed Gallek dug up the original police report, which states that foul play is suspected. He has also learned of a picture from a surveillance camera taken earlier on Sunday. The picture shows Camilia with just two kids, not all three of her children.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts is asked to contact the Fourth District Detective Bureau at 216-623-5400, or you can call 216-623-5418 or 216-621-1234 or 911.
