SEARCHING: Photo during the night search for Malik Drummond. KARK

Searcy police and others are still searching for Malik Drummond, 2, who walked away from his home in Searcy shortly before 6 p.m. Sunday. An alert was issued within an hour. Dogs are being used in the search, but reports this morning are that the child still hasn’t been found.

UPDATE: At 11 a.m., dozens had joined the search, along with the FBI and the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management.


At a 12:30 news conference, the police chief talked about the search, but had little by way of progress to offer. The child, described as autistic, reportedly disappeared while his father napped and his stepmother bathed.
