CHARLES CITY Co., Va. (WWBT/AP) - The Charles City County Sheriff’s Office said it is helping police in Washington D.C. search for a missing baby at a landfill.

No child has been found at this time.

The 2-month-old boy, Kyon Jones, was last seen on Wednesday in Northeast Washington and reported missing Friday.

Lifelong Charles City resident Vivian Harris says she is thinking about Kyon’s family and is shocked that the search brought police more than 100 miles from DC to the rural area.

“As far as someone killing somebody and somebody missing, very seldom we see anything like that. But if someone is missing and they think they are in the area or in Varina, they will try to track them and see if they can find them,” Harris explained.

She says Charles City is always quiet with little to no police activity, her hope is that the family of Kyon Jones can get closure and answers.

“All I can do is tell them to pray, and hold on,” she said. “The Lord is going to take care of them and the baby.”

District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser said the child’s mother was being questioned by investigators on Monday and considered to be “the only person of interest.”
