UPDATE, 9:45 P.M. :  Jennings Police report Bralon Edwards was found safe and returned to his parents.

Jennings Police are on the lookout for a 7-year-old boy who didn't come home earlier today. Jennings Chief of Police Todd D'Albor said his officers are using every available resource to track down the boy, but they're hoping the public can help them out.


According to D'Albor, Bralon Edwards, 7, a black male, was last seen wearing a green shirt and shorts (school uniform) and gray and black Nike shoes. He was at a friend's house and was planning to walk home but never made it there. D'Albor said Edwards was last seen near Mulkern Street.

"We don't suspect foul play, but due to the young age of the boy, we're looking at everything and using all our resources, " said the chief. "Anyone with information on this boy's whereabouts should immediately call us at 824-0423 or call your local 911."

D'Albor said all police want is to get the boy safely back home.
