WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) Wichita Police say they will brief us with the latest on Lucas Hernandez at 1:30 today. You can watch that press conference live in the window below.
Monday 9:00 a.m. Update: Wichita Police contacted us to let us know they have no new information to report on the case of a boy who’s been missing since Saturday.
Update 9 p.m.
With the help of the FBI, Wichita police continue to search for a little boy who went missing on Saturday.
Kristin Edson says her cousin, Lucas Hernandez’s step-mom and father anxiously wait news of the five-year-old.
“Very distraught. Very upset. Devastated. I mean, can you imagine? They’re just very distraught and worried about his safety. It’s cold out. We don’t know where he’s at. ”
Edson says police haven’t told them anything new but officers did tell Eyewitness News that law enforcement officers searched Chisholm Creek Park Sunday, following leads.
“All I know is that they took a nap around three-ish and she woke up with the baby around 6 to check on Lucas to see if he was in his room. She searched. The back door was open, and she called 911.”
Edson prays somebody sees this boy and brings him home to safety.
“He does have a speech impediment, so it’s kind of hard to understand what he’s saying when he talks sometimes. He’s very shy if he doesn’t know you. If he does know you he’s willing to come out and talk to you.”
Until then, she’s asking for prayers.
“He has never wandered off like this before ever. So i mean it just worries me that maybe somebody got him to open the door for them and possibly took him.”
Update 7:30 p.m.
