WASHINGTON — The Metropolitan Police Department suspects foul play in the disappearance of 2-month-old Kyon Jones, and his mother is believed to be involved, according to sources who spoke with WUSA9's Lesli Foster.
The infant was last seen Wednesday, May 5, in a residence in the 1500 block of Benning Road, Northeast, according to police. The baby was reported missing on Friday, May 7.
Kyon is described as a Black male infant with brown hair and brown eyes. Police said his clothing is unknown at this time.
It’s been four days since police said he was last seen and there is an urgent push Sunday to find the missing baby.
“I would describe it as an urgent matter,” missing person’s activist Henderson Long said. “I would describe it as a matter that needs the community’s attention. If anybody knows of the whereabouts of this 2-month-old we encourage them to dial MPD’s command information center at 727-9099 or text anonymously to 50411.”
Long is the founder of D.C.’s Missing Voice. He spent Sunday evening putting flyers with Kyon Jones’ face on it into people’s hands.
“He’s not like me and you,” Long said. “We can take care of ourselves and we can ask for help. A 2-month-old is totally dependent on their surroundings. So, given those facts the little bit that I do know we have to get out and have to do something and keep the community at a high level of awareness because you never know who may know something and come forward.”
Neighbors told WUSA9 police scoured the area looking for the baby Friday. On Saturday and Sunday, an MPD cruiser appeared to keep watch in the apartment complex parking lot.
