SEARCH SUSPENDED: For Malik Drummond.
Channels 4/16 report that the Searcy police are suspending the search for two-year-old Malik Drummond, reportedly last seen at his home more than a week ago. The police also say they are now treating the case as a criminal investigation, but further details are not available.
Said the Searcy PD: "We cannot reasonably believe this child is lost, or hiding waiting to be discovered anywhere near the area." The investigation will continue under the presumption that the child is dead or has been abducted, police told reporters.
