A 2-month-old boy has been missing from his District home for several days and police have not said publicly whether they have any indication what might have happened to him.

Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) told reporters on Monday that the infant’s mother is being questioned by police.

D.C. police have identified the infant as Kyon Jones and said he was last seen Wednesday at a residence in the 1500 block of Benning Road NE, in an apartment complex in the Kingman Park neighborhood.

Police have said little about their investigation.

However, officers went to a landfill near Richmond as part of their search, according to Officer Hugh Carew, a police spokesman.

The landfill is in Charles City County, Va., southeast of Richmond.

“We were down there,” Carew said.

He did not say what led police to the landfill. But he indicated that it was part of the investigation of the disappearance.

A department spokesman, Dustin Sternbeck, said Monday it remains an active missing-person case. “We are committed to finding this child,” he said.

Sternbeck said that “anytime a 2-month-old is missing, his whereabouts unknown, it is of great concern.” He also said police have been in contact with the infant’s relatives and investigators do not believe Kyon is with them.

Attempts to reach the infant’s mother and other relatives were not successful.

Kyon is described as Black with brown hair and brown eyes. Police said they did not have a description of the clothing he was wearing.

Anyone with information about the baby is asked to call the D.C. police Youth and Family Services Division at 202-576-6768.
