Police Confirm A Blanket Found During Search For Missing Wisconsin Boy Belongs To The Three-year-old

Wisconsin police have made a significant breakthrough in the search for a missing 3-year-old boy. Authorities have confirmed that a blanket discovered during their ongoing investigation belongs to the young child. This discovery provides a crucial clue and brings hope to the search efforts.

The Facebook post by Two Rivers police on Monday revealed that 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 20.

Elijah, the young boy, was last spotted at a residence in Two Rivers, a town situated approximately 30 miles (48 kilometers) southeast of Green Bay. It was revealed that his mother had sent him to stay with her boyfriend. Despite extensive searches conducted by the police and local community, Elijah has yet to be found. In a bid to gather information about his whereabouts, the reward for any useful information has now reached a staggering $40,000.

Last month, Katrina Baur, the mother of Elijah from Wisconsin Dells, was charged with one felony count of party-to-a-crime child neglect and two misdemeanor counts of resisting or obstructing an officer. Recently, the prosecutors modified the felony count to a charge of party-to-a-crime chronic child neglect and also added a misdemeanor charge of neglecting a child against Baur. Currently, she is being held on a $15,000 cash bond.

According to a criminal complaint, Baur, who is 31 years old, entrusted the care of her son to her boyfriend, Jesse Vang, aged 39, on February 12th. Her intention was for him to impart important life lessons and help her son develop into a responsible and mature individual.


On February 20, Vang reported the child missing to the police, explaining that he had taken a nap and brought the 3-year-old into the bedroom with him, but when he awoke three hours later, the child had disappeared.

Vang faced formal charges in February for his involvement in Elijah’s disappearance, specifically one felony count of party-to-a-crime child neglect. Currently, he remains in custody on a $20,000 cash bond.
