Family and friends of a missing 5-year-old Massachusetts boy searched his neighborhood for a second straight weekend but found no clues.
About 30 people returned to Fitchburg about 27 miles north of Worcester on Saturday to look for Jeremiah Oliver, who disappeared Sept. 14 and is feared dead.
Relatives and friends gathered Saturday night for a prayer vigil in New Britain, Conn., where Jeremiah’s father, Jose Oliver, lives. He says he’s not giving up hope that his son is OK.
Although the boy went missing in September, police didn’t learn about his disappearance until earlier this month and are treating the case as a possible homicide.
The boy’s mother, Elsa Oliver, and her boyfriend, Alberto Sierra Jr., were arrested and have pleaded not guilty to child endangerment, abuse and other charges.
