Missing baby’s family begins new search


INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – It’s been four days since Delano Wilson was last seen by his family.

IMPD called off the Amber Alert on Friday, but officers say they are still investigating his disappearance.

Beginning Sunday at noon, the family started a new search for the 6-week-old.

“We’re going to just keep going each day until we meet our goal; until we find my nephew,” said Lathrice Hamilton, Delano’s aunt.

“We’re just trying to find him and then we can cry tears of joy later,” she said.

Sunday’s search began at Oliver Avenue and Harding Streets at noon and includes Interstate 70.

The boy’s father, Willie Wilson, says he was pistol whipped while walking with the boy Wednesday around noon. He says when he came to, the boy was gone.

On Saturday afternoon, the Ten Point Coalition and Young Men Inc. held a vigil on the Wilson family’s lawn, praying with the boy’s parents.

“We can’t get any sleep, we can’t be without our son. This is a nightmare, we just want our son back if anybody knows anything, please,” said Wilson.

Since Delano went missing, hundreds of volunteers have helped look for him. Volunteers have also been handing out fliers.

“Walking, looking for anything, anything to help bring that child back to his family,” said Allen Pugh who lives in the neighborhood.

“I’m a parent, I’m a parent, so yeah, I’ll keep looking,” he said.

The family has a special thank you for the volunteers.

“Thank you so much, you are a God-given gift we really do appreciate you and everything that you do,” Hamilton said.
