Black Boy, 4, With Special Needs Missing In South Carolina

Volunteers met in Little River, S.C., this morning to continue the search for Jayden Morrison, a four-year-old Black boy who went missing on Christmas Eve at around 5:30 p.m.

Since he went missing, the Horry County Police Department, South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, CUE Center for Missing Persons, North Myrtle Brach Fire and Police, first responders, K9 teams and the American Red Cross have joined volunteers in searching for Morrison.

He was last seen wearing red and orange pajamas with guitars on them. Morrison is four-feet-tall, 40 pounds and bald. He had a pacifier and pink ribbon with him.

The police told WMBF that the child has special needs and doesn’t speak. Morrison is also from New York, so he isn’t familiar with the area.

The boy’s father, Andre Morrison, arrived in South Carolina to join the search as soon as he heard the news, according to WMBF. The father and the boy’s mother, Tabatha Morrison, are together at their home in Little River.

So far, the search has covered a 10-mile radius, officials said. Only a few bits of red cloth that might’ve come from Morrison’s pajamas have been found so far. Horry County Lieutenant Raul Denis isn’t ruling out the possibility of an abduction, according to WMBF.

All lakes and ponds in the search area have been cleared, Denis said.

Officials are asking for more help in the search for Morrison.  They encouraged people to look in places where he may be hiding, like cars and sheds.

Anyone with information about Morrison’s whereabouts should call the Horry County Police Department at (843) 248-1520.
