As of 2:30 a.m. Thursday Denton County Sheriff Office deputies were still searching for a missing 5-year-old boy.
Adrian Reyes was last seen wearing an orange shirt with black and blue stripes and a pair of blue jeans when he was taken from a residence located in the 9900 block of Cedar Lane around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sandi Brackeen, spokeswoman for the Denton County Sheriff’s Office, said. He was not wearing any shoes.
“A man came into the front door of the home and entered the house without consent,”Brackeen said near the scene of where the alleged kidnapping took place in an area known as “Hill Town” near Little Elm and Oak Point.
Brackeen said a physical confrontation between a relative of Reyes’ and the Hispanic man who took him ensued before the man grabbed the boy, left the residence and fled the area on foot.
She was unsure how many individuals were in the home at the time the boy was taken, however, she did say his mother was in Mexico.
At this time, officials have not released the name of the suspect or if he has any relation to the boy.
Brackeen said an Amber Alert had not been issued because they aren’t sure who is allowed to have custody of the boy at this time. Investigators are working to get in touch with the mother in Mexico, she said around midnight.
There has not been any indication the boy is in danger, she said.
