DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Volunteers searched again for a missing 4-year-old boy.

They were looking for Zaden McKnight, the boy who disappeared with his mother in late March.

His mother, Nichelle, was found dead along the Stillwater River, but he has yet to be located, even though police believe he, too, is dead.

Zaden’s grandmother was among the group of volunteers. She says it is hard to put into the words the gratitude she feels toward the community who have reached out to her family.

The search group gathered at the Boonshoft Museum at 3:30.  It ended a couple of hours later.
