Authorities say little Samuel Jones was last seen around 6:30 p.m. Saturday near the 100 block of Taylor Circle in Carlsbad, New Mexico playing in his back yard. There was a report of a child being seen that fitâ€™s the childâ€™s description walking in the area of Old Cavern Highway and the Carlsbad Irrigation Canal with a white bald man that was wearing a red shirt.
Young Samuel is described as being a white male that stands about 3 feet tall and they say he weighs about 40 pounds. He has short brown hair and hazel colored eyes. He also has some scratches on the left side of his chin and he is missing his four front teeth.
The last time Samuel was seen he was wearing a blue and gray striped long sleeve shirt, blue jeans, a black and white baseball cap and black converse tennis shoes.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the child are asked to please call Detective Tanya Tiller with the Carlsbad Police Department immediately at (575) 885-2111.
It scares me when the authorities believe a child might be in danger. I do hope and pray this little boy will be found before any harm is done to him. I have no other details about where his parents were when he was abducted but I will update this as soon as I know more. Please God watch over this child and bring him home safe.
Update: Crews pulled the body of a 4-year-old boy from a narrow, 30-foot-deep hole in Carlsbad Monday, two days after he disappeared from his home next door, state police said.Spokesman Robert McDonald said police confirm the body is Samuel Jones.
My prayers are with Samuel’s parents.
