The search for a missing Zion baby will continue early Thursday morning, police said.
The 5-month-old was reported missing from an apartment on the 2300 block of Galilee Avenue around 8 a.m. Wednesday. A caller indicated the "unknown persons" had abducted the boy, according to police.
Responding officers found evidence that led them to believe the circumstances surrounding the missing baby were suspicious, according to police. The police department reached out to the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, the Lake County Child Abduction Response Team, and the Northern Illinois Police Alarm System Mobile Field Force for help in investigating.
More than 100 police officers, community services and Zion emergency services and disaster agency personnel have been involved in the search so far, according to the police.
Interviews are being conducted, and the area continues to be searched. Police say, however, this is an isolated case and they do not believe other Zion residents are in danger.
Zion Deputy Chief Steve Dumyahn said investigators are expected to head back out around 8 a.m. Thursday to continue the search.
