Multiple law enforcement agencies continue investigating the disappearance of 20-month-old Quinton Simon, who was reported missing Wednesday morning around 9:40 a.m. from his home on Buckhalter Road.
Quinton Simon is 20 months old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Chatham County Police Chief Jeff Hadley said in a press conference earlier Thursday that investigators from the county’s police were joined by Savannah Police Department’s mounted patrol, investigators from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and aviation partners to provide air support and drone imaging for an extensive grid search on Wednesday in the area between Garrard Avenue, Chatham Parkway, Buckhalter Road, and Louis B. Mills Road. The location was closed to traffic on Wednesday as crews conducted their search.
“This remains a missing child investigation at this time,” said Hadley, who clarified that no evidence pointed to abduction or foul play. “But everything is on the table.”
Hadley said investigators worked until 2 a.m. and returned at 8 a.m. to conduct additional interviews and begin searching through phone records and footage from video cameras mounted near Simon’s disappearance. Search warrants have been issued for the home.
Hadley said the parents of Simon have been cooperating with investigators.
