On January 19, 2016, at approximately 3:50 a.m., officers responded to a call for police in the 9200 block of Emberglow, regarding a missing 22-month-old Black male.

Upon arrival, officers met with the reporting person, an adult cousin, who was in care of the child while the mother was out of town. 

Officers and neighbors began a search of the area when an unknown resident spotted the child floating face down in a small pond behind the apartment office of Chimney Hill Apartments.  The Chimney Hill Apartments are located across the street from the condominiums where the child was staying.

Officers jumped in the pond and extracted the boy; Dallas Fire and Rescue personnel performed CPR on the child. The child was transported to Medical City Hospital for treatment; the last known condition of the child is critical. As more information becomes available it will be distributed accordingly.
