  1. I hope we can get an update on this child. As a father of a lovely 2 year old son I am heart broken to read this information.

  2. Poor little boy! I hope he reconnects with his family soon! Please let us know if you hear any developments.

  3. The boy’s grandmother and aunt saw him on TV. They picked him up.

    Mother was taken to Bellvue. Not clear if she was with him. Or what is wrong with her.

    Trevon Frazier is his name.
