BELDING, Mich. (WOOD) - Authorities put up police tape around the home of a missing 10-year-old Belding boy Sunday night as they searched his house and took pictures for evidence.
A 24 Hour News 8 crew went to the house Sunday evening to speak with Devon Morrison's family. When we arrived, we saw officers sealing off an area around the family's home and searching the residence. Authorities wouldn't give us specifics about their search.
Devon's mother told 24 Hour News 8 authorities were "searching for things for the search tomorrow."
As the evening went on, at least a dozen agents from various law enforcement agencies arrived at the home.
Late Sunday night, police walked out of the house with several bags of evidence but would not tell 24 Hour News 8 what the bags contained. Around 11 p.m., they removed the crime tape from the area and left the scene.
This happened hours after dozens of members of the Belding community, as well as the FBI, spent the day looking for the 10-year-old boy who hasn't been seen since Saturday morning. He left his home near Harrison Street and N. York Street to go fishing in the nearby Flat River. Around 6:30 p.m., his family called authorities to report the boy's disappearance.
On Saturday night, police searched the Flat River with infrared technology, but found nothing. Michigan State Police flew a helicopter in the area Sunday morning and searched the length of the river. Authorities currently believe Devon is not in the river.
Law enforcement agents went door to door in the boy's neighborhood, and in some cases went inside houses, looking for Devon.
The FBI sent a team to assist Belding police, Ionia County sheriff's deputies and Michigan State Police with the case.
Authorities have been speaking with members of Devon's family since Saturday. Devon's mother and his grandfather were held by police for questioning Sunday and were released later in the day.
It is unknown if Devon's father or his mother's boyfriend have been questioned.
Authorities said they have no suspects at the time, but are calling the disappearance "suspicious." Police said they have researched sex offenders in the area, but currently the offenders have been ruled out as suspects.
Authorities said they are concerned with the weather, as Devon may still be out in the rain and cold temperatures.
Belding residents, as well as friends of Devon's family, came to assist law enforcement agents with the search.
Brent Slater works near the Flat River where Devon often goes fishing. Slater told 24 Hour News 8 he saw Devon struggling in the river two months ago and saved him.
"He was yelling for help, his shoe got stuck and I pulled him out," said Slater.
One of Devon's neighbors, Kevin Seely, told 24 Hour News 8 he saw the boy before Devon disappeared.
"I was walking to my dad's and he was there fishing. A half hour later, I walked back and he was gone. I figured he walked home," said Seely.
Both Slater and Seely volunteered to search for Devon during the weekend. They both said they hope he is found safely.
The City of Belding's Facebook page has been updating information for people who want to help in the search for Devon.
Anyone with information on Devon's whereabouts are asked to call Ionia Central Dispatch at 616.522.0911 or a tipline at 616.794.1900.
