Police in Wichita, Kansas are still seeking the public’s help in finding a 5-year-old boy who was reported missing Saturday evening.
“Very distraught. Very upset. Devastated. I mean, can you imagine?” a friend described the state of the family. “They’re just very distraught and worried about his safety. It’s cold out. We don’t know where he’s at.”
Police said they received a call at about 6:15 p.m. to report Lucas Hernandez was lost in the 600 block of south Edgemoor. When officers arrived, Lucas’ 26-year-old step mom said he was last seen at about 3 p.m. Saturday in his bedroom prior to her showering and falling asleep.
Officers and canine units have searched both his home and neighborhood with no luck, Officer Charley Davidson said.
He said police have found no evidence that points toward an abduction, which is why an Amber Alert has not been activated.
If you have any information on Lucas or his whereabouts, the department asks that you call 316-383-4661. Davidson said many have reached out willing to help search, but he said the best way to help right now is to share Lucas’ missing child poster.
“Our thoughts and prayers remain with Lucas and Lucas’ family,” Davidson said.
