Police and volunteer searches continue to search for the missing three year old boy Kendrick Jackson. The Amber Alert continues as Kendrick Jackson has been missing for two days.
The family of the Kendrick Jackson made an emotional plea Saturday for his safe return. Kendrick disappeared Friday morning around 10am from his father’s apartment complex on Wilcrest near Briar Forest in west Houston.
Texas Equusearch volunteers spent a second day Saturday combing through the complex. Police have the boy’s mother in custody for questioning. Officers may also be questioning Jackson’s father and stepmother.
The boy’s great grandmother issued this message directly to her great grandson.
“Kendrick, we all love you,” pleaded Lucille Jackson. “We are all waiting for you to come home and sugar mama misses you very much.”
Search continues for missing three-year-old boy
Kendrick Jackson has now been missing since 10am Friday morning. The parents, mother, father and stepmother have all been questioned by authorities. Also on Sunday, authorities searched inside Kendrick Jackson father’s apartment.
While searchers look for a missing three-year-old boy, police officers did some searching of their own Sunday inside the apartment of the youngster’s father. Investigators bagged some items for closer examination.
Volunteer searchers from Texas EquuSearch also used technological methods to help aid in the search of the missing three year old.
Volunteer Gene Robinson used a remote control plane and photographed empty fields close to where Kendrick was last seen.
“You can see that I was way down there and way down there,” he said, pointing from one direction to the opposite one. “So it’s easy for me to cover a mile of area quickly.”
Although the camera snapped 75 pictures during the short flight, none of them led to the boy.
Police have taken several bags of evidence from the dad’s apartment as well have given several people involved in the investigation polygraph tests.
Possibly the most productive search of the day was when police removed several bags of evidence, including a mop from Jackson’s father’s apartment.
Police have given several people involved in the investigation polygraph tests. We don’t know the results of those tests yet.

Officers also brought the boy’s mother, Keyanna Jackson, 21, in for another round of questioning and confirmed that some family members had been given a polygraph test.
“Both parents have voluntarily submitted to questioning,” Houston Police Sgt. Nate McDuell said. “They, of all people, are most interested in bringing the child home. It wouldn’t be unusual that they would be questioned extensively.”
