    His grandmother, Nisha Johnson, said Jayce’s mother was at work and the boy’s coach picked him up for football practice and was planning on bringing him home.
    *Omg, look how cute and innocent he is a new photo:

    After practice, the coach was handing out uniforms and told the boys who were riding with him to get in the car. When he turned around, Jayce was gone.

    Police have set up a command post near the scene. So far, officers have checked every vehicle in the area.

    I wonder if he got into a parked car and just waited? I hope he is truly safe. It would be miraculous.

    Yes, really for everyone involved if it was just a child wandering off, I’m sure everyone has been distraught, feeling guilty, and panicked. There is a lake at the park, lots of things that could seemingly go wrong. I’m also wondering why a 5 year old football practice was ending after 8 pm

    I really hope it is one of his parents because the alternative is terrifying.

    That's my thought, then fell asleep. Thank God he's safe. I bet LE is grinning ear to ear about now, such a good ending :)

    Could he have been sitting in the wrong vehicle for 3 hours?
