Drone used in search for missing boy by Waco Police Department

The Waco Police Department is using a drone in the search of the missing Frankie Gonzales, who law enforcement officials believe is in grave danger.

KCENTV reports that, after search efforts on Monday were unsuccessful, Waco officials are now going into the second day of searching for the missing boy. In a post on social media, the police department said that Gonzales was last seen at Cameron Park near University Parks and Herring Ave. under the bridge.

The McLennan County Sherriff's Office is sending out a helicopter to aid in the search. The Waco Fire Department made rescue boats available and the Waco Police Department is using a drone in the search.

Gonzales has black hair, brown eyes and was last seen wearing a gray Mickey Mouse shirt, grey mickey Mouse pants, and black and white Nike shoes.

The Amber Alert Network has issued an abduction alert for Gonzales, and law enforcement officials believe him to be in grave danger. If you see Gonzalez, call 9-1-1 or the Waco PD at (254) 750-7500.
