Two-year-old King disappeared with his 21-year-old aunt, Diamond Bynum in Gary, Indiana on July 25, 2015.
The two of them were last seen at Diamond's house (located in the 500 block of Matthews Street) at approximately 10:20 a.m. where Diamond's stepmother was taking a nap. When she woke up at 11:00 a.m., they were gone & it's believed that they walked away from the residence, possibly to go to a local store.
At the time of her disappearance, Diamond lived with her stepmother & father; King lived with his mother & visited his grandparents and aunt every weekend. Diamond's family moved to Gary from Hammond, Indiana in February of 2015 and Diamond wasn't familiar with the area, so it is possible that she and King became lost, but her family stated it's uncharacteristic of her to go more than a few blocks from home.
Diamond has a genetic medical condition caled Prader-Willi Syndrome (with symptoms that include mental disability, short stature and a constant feeling of hunger). She has the mental capacity of a 5-to-7-year-old person and has difficulty communicating with others, but her family understands her & she knows her father's phone number. Diamond requires medication which she did not have when she left her home and if she doesn't take it, she develops behavioral problems & may become a danger to herself.
There were reported sightings of King & Diamond in Gary in Hammond and in Chicago, Illinois after their disappearances, but none of the sightings have been confirmed. Their family hopes they're still alive, but their cases remain unsolved & they are classified as "endangered missing."
King is an African-American male with black hair & brown eyes, has a height of 3'0 and weighs 34 pounds. His hair was styled in dreadlocks at the time of his disappearance. King was last seen wearing a blue t-shirt & red shorts.
His aunt Diamond is an African-American female with black hair & brown eyes, has a height of 4'8 and weighs between 210-238 pounds. She had gold highlights in her hair at the time of her disappearance & walks with a pronounced limp. Diamond was last seen wearing a white top & blue jeans.
