Police: Father waited 2 weeks to report son missing
UTICA -- Utica Police are searching for a 9-month-old boy who was left alone on his front porch two weeks ago.
According to investigators, Levon Wameling was wearing only a diaper when he went missing.
Utica Police say Levon's father, 27-year-old Jevon Wameling, told investigators that around 11:30 p.m. on May 29th, he left the baby alone on the front porch outside their Jay Street home for a few minutes. When he returned, Levon was gone.
The Utica Observer-Dispatch reports that the boy's mother had entered rehab shortly before Levon went missing. When the mother and stepfather began asking Jevon where the boy was, Utica Police were contacted by an attorney, not directly by the boys father, informing them that Levon was missing.
Utica Police are asking anyone that knows the whereabouts of this child, or knows what happened to him, to please call 315-223-3503, 315-223-3510, or 315-735-3301.
