I hope little John is just hiding out and they will find him soon. The town he lives in is pretty small, very rural outside of town and sits on the Ohio River, which is still swollen.

I hope this little fellow is found safe and sound. That must be so scarey for him to be outside in the dark.

Search Resumes For Missing Ind. Boy

UPDATED: 8:41 am EDT June 13, 2011

~Snipped~
Investigators said Burton will sometimes hide from people he believes are looking for him.

Police said they initially thought Burton was with a dog when he disappeared, but they now said that's not the case.

Bloodhounds were brought in to try and track Burton, but so far they have turned up empty handed.

Ed Napier with Buckeye Search and Rescue Dogs said, "You feel for these people. It's emotional in that sense, but we train very hard and we're trying to find a successful conclusion."

Sunday night investigators say Burton's scent stopped near a creek. But, officials say they are nearly certain he's not in the water.

Chief Bryan Fields with the Aurora Police Department said, "Right now our investigation is mainly treating this as missing persons. But we'd be remiss if we didn't say we're not interested in an abduction scenario. But we don't have evidence that would support that at this point."

Crews searched until dark, then used a helicopter with a thermal imaging camera to look for the boy's body heat.

My heart is breaking for this little guy. Now they are saying the dog wasn't with him. The creeks and rivers are swollen around here. Let's hope and pray they find him and bring him home today and that foul play is not involved.

The police chief in the video states that this particular creek was at normal level. They'll release more information in a few hours.

Rest in peace, Little John. Another little angel in heaven afro

They believe so, waiting on autopsy report. According to this article, they had just moved in this new house on Saturday, moved there from a small nearby town. Then this happened on Sunday. So tragic.

The body of a 7-year-old autistic boy whose family had moved into a new house in Aurora Saturday was found in a creek Monday morning, according to Aurora police.
