INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Aug. 30, 2014) -- The family of a missing one-month-old baby is keeping hope alive that he will be found.
The Amber Alert issued for Delano Wilson on Wednesday has been cancelled, and police aren't doing any active searches, but that doesn't mean they've given up, and neither has the family.
A vigil was held, Saturday, in the front yard of Delano Wilson's house. It's where his parents are standing by the fact that they don't know who, they say, took their baby boy Wednesday. It's also where they are sticking together and comforting each other.
"We just wanna let whoever out there has our son to bring him back. We don't care where you send him to, we just want him back alive and safe in our arms. We can't get any sleep, we can't sleep without our son. This is a nightmare, we just want our son back. If anybody know anything, please, please bring him to us. Bring him to us," said Willie Wilson, father of baby Delano.
"We're pretty much on our own, but we have god with us, so we're walking by faith," said family friend Lethrice Hamilton, who was handing out fliers with Delano Wilson's picture on it.
Indianapolis faith-based groups created a circle of prayer on Wilson's front lawn, days after baby Delano disappeared. Willie Wilson claims he was pistol whipped and knocked to the ground Wednesday, and when he came to, noticed his son was being taken away by a couple in a blue Ford Taurus. Even though he was knocked to the ground, Wilson was still able to give a vivid description of the couple right down to the woman's earrings. It's on the fliers that were handed out.
"We're keeping our faith, we're keeping our faith because we know at the end of the day, God has the last say so. He's already in this," Hamilton said.
While police aren't actively searching, they are following leads that they hope will continue to come in. The family, desperate for a conclusion, has put up a $10,000 reward.
