Wisconsin police verify ownership of blanket found in search for missing 3-year-old boy

Wisconsin authorities have made a significant breakthrough in their search for a missing 3-year-old boy. The police have confirmed that a blanket, discovered during their ongoing investigation, belongs to the young child who disappeared last month in Two Rivers. This discovery provides a crucial clue in the efforts to locate him and brings renewed hope to his loved ones and the community.

According to a recent Facebook post by Two Rivers police, Elijah Vue’s red and white plaid blanket, which was discovered earlier during 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 house in Two Rivers, a town situated approximately 30 miles southeast of Green Bay. Prosecutors revealed that Elijah’s mother had sent him to stay with her boyfriend at that location. Despite extensive police and community searches, Elijah remains missing. In an effort to gather information about his whereabouts, authorities have increased the reward for any valuable leads to $40,000.

Elijah’s mother, Katrina Baur of Wisconsin Dells, faced legal charges recently. Initially, she was 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 party-to-a-crime chronic child neglect and added a misdemeanor charge of neglecting a child against Baur. Currently, she is in custody on a $15,000 cash bond.

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