ZION, IL (WTAQ) - Wisconsin National Guard members have joined the search for a five-month-old boy missing for two weeks in northeast Illinois.
Hundreds of volunteers and law enforcement officers have been looking for Joshua Summeries, who vanished from his home in Zion Illinois on August 21st.
According to broadcast reports, police identified the mother’s boyfriend early on as a person of interest – and he has since admitted killing Joshua.
The search for the infant is now centered at a landfill in Zion.
National Guard member Jamie Stroh of Racine rounded up some of his fellow troops to help search the smelly dump. Lieutenant David Dicker of Muskego said he’s taken aback by the massive size of the landfill.
The searchers have been told that Joshua was placed in a backpack.
