Noah Tomlin case: 2-year-old Virginia boy allegedly disappeared from his bed
Police are searching for a missing 2-year-old boy after he allegedly disappeared from his home in the middle of the night.
Noah Tomlin was reportedly last seen around 1 a.m. Monday in bed at his family's mobile home in Hampton, Va., CNN reports. Police say the child was wearing a white and green striped pajama shirt and a diaper at the time.
The toddler's mother reported him missing around 11:30 a.m. that same day, launching a dayslong intensive police search for the child.
On Wednesday afternoon, Hampton Police Chief Terry Sult shared an update on the hunt for Noah, saying that while authorities are "still hopeful" they will locate the child "safe and sound," they are also "looking at all potential aspects that this case could lead us to."
"We have looked on land, water," Sult said during a press conference. "We have checked trash, dumpsters. We have checked neighborhoods, houses, underneath buildings and sheds. We actually covered the area multiple times with different teams so we would have different eyes checking the same locations repeatedly."
The police chief added that investigators will be shifting search efforts to a local landfill, but clarified there was "no specific information" or tips that led them to do so.
"We are looking at everything from the child walking off to the abduction scenario," Sult said. "There is nothing that we’re not looking at."
The boy's parents are said to be cooperating with the investigation. His mother is "holding up as well as you could expect under the circumstances," according to Sult.
Anyone with information regarding the boy's whereabouts is urged to call the Hampton Police Division at 757-727-6111.
"There's somebody out there that likely knows something," Sult said. "We need that piece of information to help guide us."
