• The infant was reported missing Friday
  • Activits distributed flyers Sunday with the baby's face on it
  • Sources close to the police said foul play was suspected in the case

Washington authorities, who are searching for a 2-month-old missing baby, suspect foul play in the case.

The child's mother is likely involved in his disappearance, sources close to the investigation told WUSA9's Lesli Foster. The infant, identified as Kyon Jones, was last seen Wednesday in Benning Road, and was reported missing on Friday. The police described him as a Black male infant with brown hair and brown eyes. On Sunday, authorities extended the search for the baby.

“I would describe it as an urgent matter,” missing person’s activist Henderson Long – the founder of D.C.’s Missing Voice – said. “I would describe it as a matter that needs the community’s attention. If anybody knows of the whereabouts of this 2-month-old we encourage them to dial MPD’s command information center at 727-9099 or text anonymously to 50411.”

On Sunday, flyers were distributed in nearby areas with Jones’ face on it.

“He’s not like me and you,” Long said. “We can take care of ourselves and we can ask for help. A 2-month-old is totally dependent on their surroundings. So, given those facts the little bit that I do know we have to get out and have to do something and keep the community at a high level of awareness because you never know who may know something and come forward.”

Authorities urged the public to come forward with any information about the missing child or a suspect. Anyone with information about the baby is asked to call the police Youth and Family Services Division at 202-576-6768.
