An Amber Alert has been issued for an 18-month-old boy who was reported missing from Dallas on Wednesday morning.
Police say Cedric Jackson was reported missing by his aunt around 6 a.m. Wednesday. She told police she put him to bed sometime after 11 p.m. Tuesday and he was gone when she woke up at 6 a.m. Wednesday. She called 9-1-1 at that time.
Police say the boy had been placed in her temporary custody by CPS.
Investigators say a juvenile witness described someone who looked like a relative taking the boy. Police say that relative was located, but did not have Cedric. Authorities say the relative is in jail on unrelated warrants.
Police say the individual the child described seeing was a black male in his 40s, 5'7", and around 180 pounds. Investigators aren't sure if that person is the person they have in custody or if they are looking for someone else with the same description.
Cedrick Jackson is described as being 20 lbs. with braids and brown eyes.
Officers searched the house and are canvassing for witnesses and cameras. They are also interviewing family and anyone who may have had contact with the boy.
If you have any information on this abduction, contact police at 214-671-4268.
