MONTEZUMA, Iowa (AP) — Law enforcement officials asked the public to help them Sunday with the search for an 11-year-old east-central Iowa boy. Hundreds of volunteers showed up.
Xavior Harrelson was last seen around 11 a.m. Thursday on his bike near his home on the north end of Montezuma.
Mitch Mortvedt, assistant director of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, said areas around the family's home were searched Sunday. About 375 volunteers joined 125 law enforcement officers and first responders in the search.
Sunday was the boy’s 11th birthday.
He was last seen around 11 a.m. Thursday on his bike near his home on the north end of Montezuma.
He was wearing a red shirt and blue pajama pants with black high-top shoes when he disappeared, authorities said. Police and family of the boy said it is out of the ordinary for him to be gone from home overnight with no contact.
