SEARCY, Ark. — Two-year-old Malik Drummond has not been seen since Sunday and with temperatures dropping, concern is growing.

Malik’s mother said her son, who is autistic, wandered away from his home while she took a bath and his father slept.

Police are not ruling out the possibility of foul play and are using a polygraph machine to rule people out as possible suspects.

“We’re not ruling out foul play but at the same time we don’t have anything indicating there was foul play,” said Cpl. Steve Hernandez with the Searcy Police Department told KTHV-TV.

Search dogs have been brought in and numerous volunteers have searched but there is no sign of the child.

Malik was last seen wearing brown pants and a blue shirt.

    God help our children who seemingly are having to fend for themselves. Not pointing a finger, but if you have an autistic child, and you are getting ready to bathe, did you make provision to be sure the child was and would be safe first. And, why was the dad sleep while the mom was in the tub. Seems like he could have watched and supervised the child until the mom was finished. Then dad could have taken a nap. Maybe new parents need a “child rearing and supervision” manual since we know children don’t come with a manual. I’m stumped. God bless our children!
