Nation-Wide Critical Amber Alert Issued For Missing 18-Month-Old Boy Cedric Johnson

"My baby is a good baby. He is a good boy. He is a little shy," said DiShundra Thomas, little Cedric's mother. "Just keep him safe. Bring him back to us. Doesn't matter where he is. I just want him back safe."

Police are on the lookout for an 18-month-old child who was allegedly abducted from a residence in the Lake Highlands area. Authorities in Dallas have also asked the FBI to assist them in the investigation of the missing child. At first, a regional Amber Alert was issued, which has since been updated to a statewide Amber Alert. 



 

According to reports, Cedric Jackson was placed in temporary custody with an aunt recently by Child Protective Services. He was last seen around 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday in the 9700 block of Whitehurst Drive. According to the young child's aunt, she had put him to bed at just around 11 p.m. 



 



 

The incident report cited by FOX News states that the aunt woke up on Thursday morning at 6 a.m. and saw that Cedric was not in his bed. She immediately called the police.



 



 

Police officers tracked down the person, but baby Cedric was not found with him. However, the man was taken to jail on other warrants. Dallas Police Major Max Geron issued a statement, which said: "A juvenile witness that lives at the location described someone who looks like a relative as having taken Cedric at some point in the night." 



 

Cedric's parents are hoping for the safe return of their child. "My baby is a good baby. He is a good boy. He is a little shy," said DiShundra Thomas, little Cedric's mother. "Just keep him safe. Bring him back to us. Doesn't matter where he is. I just want him back safe."



 

Authorities are encouraging anyone with information to call 911 or the Dallas Police Department Missing Persons Unit at 214-671-4268.
