Two weeks after a 3-year-old boy disappeared in Wisconsin, law enforcement is asking people to check their security footage for a specific car on the day before the child went missing, as per the police on Tuesday.

Elijah Vue was last seen on February 20 in Two Rivers while under the care of Jesse Vang, who was dating the boy’s mother, Katrina Baur. Vang told the police he noticed Elijah was gone when he woke up from a nap at his home, and the child wasn’t there.

Both Baur, 31, and Vang, 39, were charged with neglect about a week after the disappearance. Baur also faces a felony charge of chronic child neglect in an updated complaint filed Thursday, according to CNN affiliate WLUK. CNN has sought comment from their lawyers.

Police in Two Rivers are requesting camera footage of a 1997 four-door Nissan Altima, beige in color, with Wisconsin registration starting with “A” and ending with “0.”

The police have the vehicle now, and according to a news release on Tuesday, “Jesse Vang and Katrina Baur are not owners of the vehicle.”

Police clarified their “interest is not with the current owner of the vehicle, only in the camera footage captured on February 19, 2024, between the hours of 2:00 PM – 9:00 PM.”

Law enforcement from across Wisconsin, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Division of Criminal Investigation, and Department of Natural Resources, searched rural areas in Manitowoc County on Tuesday, as per the release.

“A child missing for any amount of time is everyone’s worst nightmare,” said Two Rivers Police Chief Ben Meinnert during a press conference last week.

An Amber Alert has been issued for the toddler, described as having dark blond hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing gray pants, a long-sleeve dark shirt, red and green dinosaur shoes, and possibly carrying a red and white plaid blanket.

A reward of up to $25,000 is offered for information leading to the discovery of the child or the arrest of those responsible for his disappearance, according to the police department.

“We stand before you today with heavy hearts burdened by an unimaginable situation. The pain is indescribable, a torment no family or child should ever face,” said Elijah’s aunt Linda Vue at last week’s press conference. “We cannot express the depth of our sorrow, nor the desperation that consumes us as each moment passes without news of Elijah’s safety.”
