Police say Kyrin is non-verbal but is highly functional. According to the Silver Alert issued by the Indiana State Police, Kyrin “is believed to be in extreme danger and may require medical assistance.”
Carter is a “Black male, 5 feet 4 inches tall, 130 pounds, brown hair with brown eyes, last seen wearing a light blue shirt, dark blue shorts with a light blue stripe and no shoes,” the Indiana State Police said.
Kyrin was last seen leaving the Best Western hotel in Hammond, Indiana, at 3830 179th Street, according to police. Authorities released a photo from a surveillance video camera showing Kyrin leaving the hotel. The Best Western is located near 179th Street and Cline Avenue.
According to ABC Chicago, authorities believe Kyrin went out of the hotel’s back door near the Little Caulumet River. Police said at a press conference that dive teams were brought out as a precaution, but it is not believed that Kyrin went into the river. There is also a wooded area located near the back of the hotel.
“It’s been just 48 hours, so our fingers are crossed that he’s maybe still somewhere hiding and scared and that we’re still going to find him,” Lieutenant Steve Kellogg of the Hammond Police Department told the news station on Sunday.
Duckworth told ABC Chicago, “He doesn’t ask for much. He just wants to be around his family. He’s my whole world. He means everything to me. Everything that I do is for him, everything.”
Duckworth passed out flyers to volunteers and told the news station, “The flyers are more so everybody can see his face, just to see his face, bring him back.”
The boy’s aunt, Patricia Duckworth, wrote on Facebook, “Being numb is an understatement. Please God revealed to us where this baby is at better yet let him be found.”
Authorities and Kyrin’s family said he could be scared by strangers. The Highland Police Department, which assists in the search, wrote on Facebook, “If you do see Kyrin, please do not approach him. We ask that you immediately call 911. Due to Kyrin being autistic, a stranger may scare him or cause him to run away. Do your best to keep him in your sight as you call 911 and emergency responders will be sent to your location. If you think you might have seen something since Saturday, please call 911 as well.”
The department added, “We ask that you check inside your garage, your shed, and your swimming pools. Look behind any outside objects on your properties that somebody can hide behind. If you have a deck, check under it. If you have a commercial dumpster, please check inside of it. If there are cars or trucks on your property, please check inside the cars or trucks.”
Patricia Duckworth told ABC Chicago, “So if you call his mom’s name, that probably makes him, you know, stop because he does know Danielle. I know he’s on system overload at this point in time, so if just anybody sees anything, I just need this baby returned back to his mom.”
