Officials searched for Cole Evans throughout the cold nighttime hours with no success. The seven-year-old Arizona boy is still missing, shaping this case up to be a potential disaster like many other sad cases in the news. With it being nearly 24 hours since this child was last seen, there are a number of questions to be asked regarding his family members' alibis and whether or not anyone dangerous lives in his grandmother's neighborhood.
Officials confirm that the boy's family is "fully cooperating," which eliminates them from the speculation. If his family members are completely cooperative with the search for him and the investigation into his disappearance, it's not likely that any of them are to blame.
So could he have been abducted?
This source states that foul play is not suspected. Does foul play include stranger abduction in this particular scenario? Seven-year-old Cole Evans has a mild form of autism, which adds to the level of urgency in finding him. If he is not operating under fully sound judgment and cognitive processes, he could be in danger. Hopefully today brings good news in the search for this missing child.
