    Police in Minneapolis are asking for the public's help in finding a 4-year-old Chicago boy missing since Wednesday, who may have been taken by an acquaintance.

    The boy, Demond Keith Reed, was taken around 6 p.m. from 3118 Morgan Avenue North in Minneapolis. Police describe Demond as 3 feet all, black and was last seen wearing pajamas with SpongeBob Squarepants, a blue jacket and snow boots.

    Police believe Demond was taken by an acquaintance, whose name is Shawna Williams. Police said Williams, of Chicago, goes by the name "Shawn" and has a cousin named Joanne who lives in Minnesota.

    Williams is described as a black female with a dark complexion, about 35-38 years old, 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 7 inches tall with a thin to medium build. Williams has brown chin-length, straight hair with brown and blond highlighted weaves in it.

    She also has "Shawn" tattooed on her arm and wears a small stud nose ring. She was last seen wearing a dark rusty-red short leather jacket, a white skull cap, white gloves, white shoes and faded blue jeans.

    Earlier, police had thought the person who took Demond may be driving a Gray '92 Ford Taurus with the license plate EUC 181. Authorities now said they don't know if Williams is riding around in a vehicle.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Minneapolis Police Dispatch at 612 348-2345.

    Minneapolis authorities said Friday they believe that a 4-year-old boy who was reported missing late Wednesday may have been taken from a relative's home by an acquaintance from Chicago.

    Demond Keith Reed disappeared late Wednesday afternoon from the home of relatives who lived on Minneapolis' northeast side.

    Minneapolis police say Demond, who they believe to be a resident of Chicago, had come up to Minneapolis to visit his father, Tony Reed, who is originally from Chicago.

    But police believe the boy may now be in the care of a Chicago woman who police described as a "friend of a friend" of the Reed family.

    "We would like to talk to her to see if she's involved or not," said Minneapolis police spokesman William Palmer, who called the woman a suspect in the boy's disappearance.

    Police are asking anyone with information about the case to contact either Chicago police at 911 or Minneapolis police at 612-348-2345.

    The newspapers are reporting that he was found in the same house that he disappeared from. There wasn't an AA issued b/c of the lack of information given by relatives.

    Sad story. he recently visited his father in Chicago... who is incarcerated.

    The details surrounding this little fella have been very sketchy. Also the lady who supposedly took him never owned a car....so no need for a amber alert. At least thats what I heard on the NEWS this morning.

    They never even released til later today that he'd been beaten. Its a sad case........

    A 37-year-old woman is behind bars in connection with the apparent homicide of 4-year-old Demond Keith Reed...

    and

    Carla Cherisse Poole is being held in the Hennepin County Jail on probable cause of murder, Palmer said.

    and

    ...in an interview last week with KARE-11 after the boy disappeared, Poole said she was the boy's cousin and he had been staying with her since December.

    Missing 4 yr old boy found dead - cousin charged

    http://www.kare11.com/news/news_arti...storyid=497145

    Brown said authorities told her Reed will need to be identified by his dental records.

    "To know that he's not recognized, and to be unidentified, it's unexplainable," Brown said.

    Yet, another "Susan Smith" story. Makes me sick, this poor little boy. Well I can only hope this POS is locked away forever. They haven't determined how Demond died yet. I feel so sorry for grandmother.
