Denton Police are looking for a 2-year-old boy, Sarbresh Gurung, who was reported missing by his mother on Tuesday afternoon.
The police department tweeted, “Please be on the lookout for Sarbresh, a 2 year old Asian male who was reported missing in the 2400 block of W. Prairie St.”
That’s near the University of North Texas campus.
Anyone who sees him should call 911 or a special hotline set up: 940-349-7960.
His mother told police she put him down for a nap and when she went to check on him around 2:00 p.m., he was missing.
Police launched drones to help in their search.
More than 100 people from the community showed up to Louise and Ave. G to help assist in the search.
“I can’t tell you how proud I am to live in a community and work in a community like Denton, Texas,” said Police Chief Frank Dixon. “The amount of community members that came out here from the mayor, to the city council people, and just everyday citizens, was amazing.”
The child’s father was at police headquarters Tuesday afternoon speaking with detectives.
Police say at this point the case does not meet the criteria for an Amber Alert.
There are no reports of a child in the area being abducted.
“We have done two very thorough searches,” Chief Dixon said during a news conference shortly before 7:00 p.m. “Now that we are moving to the 7 o’clock hour, we understand people are coming home from work. They are coming home from being out, we are going to do another search.”
