A 2-year-old boy with special needs went missing from his family’s home in California.
Thaddeus Sran, who is non-verbal, was last seen at his family’s home in 800 block of C Street on Tuesday night. He was reported missing the next morning after his parents woke up and couldn’t find the young boy.
Thaddeus mostly crawls and has only recently learned to walk.
Authorities have stated they were investigating the boy’s disappearance as a possible abduction. More than 100 city workers and law enforcement officials are working together to locate the boy.
Madera Police Chief Dino Lawson said during a press conference that multiple agencies are cooperating with the search, including the Madera County Sheriff’s Department, US Marshals, and the FBI, the Fox 26 reported.
“Time isn’t on our side right now. It could be that he got out of the house, it could be that he was abducted. Everything is on the table. We’re looking at everything and we’re leaving no stone unturned,” Chief Lawson said.
“Everyone is concerned for Thaddeus’s welfare, especially since he requires specialized care that few are equipped to provide.
“We cannot imagine what Thaddeus’s parents are going through and all agencies involved are focused on the effort to locate Thaddeus and ensure that anyone who may be responsible for his disappearance faces justice.”
According to authorities, the family just moved into the home only a few weeks ago. The family also announced a $5,000 reward for information on the boy’s whereabouts.
Thaddeus was last seen wearing Spider-Man pants and a red shirt. For anyone with information, please contact the police at 559-675-4220.
