Update: Willie Wilson was found not guilty of murder. Read more here.
INDIANAPOLIS (Aug. 29, 2014) – A $10,000 reward is being offered in the search for a missing infant at the center of an Amber Alert.
The family of Delano Wilson is offering the reward as the search for the 6-week-old boy enters its third day. Police were conducting a grid search concentrated on woods in the area where the boy was last seen, and Indianapolis Metropolitan police have set up a command unit nearby. The FBI will assist officers in their search.
At least 100 people are involved in the effort to find the little boy, who was reported missing Wednesday. His father, Willie Wilson, claims a man and woman tried to rob him at gunpoint before hitting him and taking off with the baby in a blue Taurus. Wilson says the abduction happened just after noon Wednesday in an alley in the 1400 block of Henry Street, near the family’s home on Chase Street.
Thursday’s search turned up empty. Police said they’ve received numerous tips in the case. The search area will be released, giving the “all clear” to people in the area. It is possible other areas could be searched.
