Authorities verify that a blanket discovered in the search for a missing Wisconsin child is belongs to the 3-year-old

TWO RIVERS, Wis. (AiExpress) — Wisconsin authorities have made a significant breakthrough in their search for a missing 3-year-old boy, as they have now confirmed that a blanket discovered during the ongoing investigation belongs to the young child. This discovery provides a crucial piece of evidence that could potentially lead to further leads and unravel the mystery surrounding his disappearance.

Elijah Vue’s red and white plaid blanket, which was discovered earlier in the investigation, was found approximately 3.7 miles away from the location where the boy was reported missing on February 20th, as stated by Two Rivers police in a Facebook post on Monday.

Elijah, the young boy, was last spotted at a house in Two Rivers, a town situated approximately 30 miles southeast of Green Bay. According to reports, his mother had sent him to stay with her boyfriend at that particular residence. Despite extensive efforts by the police and local residents, Elijah has not been found yet. Moreover, the reward for any valuable information regarding his whereabouts has now increased to $40,000.

Elijah’s mother, Katrina Baur from Wisconsin Dells, faced legal charges last month. She was initially charged with one felony count of party-to-a-crime child neglect and two misdemeanor counts of resisting or obstructing an officer. However, prosecutors later modified the felony count to a charge of party-to-a-crime chronic child neglect. Additionally, they filed a misdemeanor charge of neglecting a child against Baur. She is currently held on a $15,000 cash bond.

In a criminal complaint, it was mentioned that Baur, 31, entrusted her son to her boyfriend, Jesse Vang, 39, on Feb. 12 with the intention of teaching him “to be a man.”

On February 20, Vang contacted the police to report that the boy was missing. He informed them that he had taken a nap and had the 3-year-old in the bedroom with him. However, when he woke up three hours later, the child was no longer there.

Vang faces a formal charge in February for party-to-a-crime child neglect in relation to Elijah’s disappearance. Currently, he remains in custody with a $20,000 cash bond.
