LEADORE, Idaho (AP) — The FBI is sending a team of investigators to assist the Lemhi County Sheriff’s Office in its search for a missing 2-year-old who disappeared during a family camping trip.

KBOI reports Sheriff Lynn Bowerman said he’s convinced the toddler was not abducted, but he can’t rule out the possibility.

The boy, DeOrr Kunz, was last seen on July 10th at his family’s campsite at Timber Creek Campground, just south of the town of Leadore near the Montana border.

For the past three weeks, search teams have combed the remote backcountry to look for the boy.

Bowerman said everyone at the campsite — including the boy’s parents, great-grandfather and a family friend — is considered a person of interest in the case, but none of them are suspects.

“We continue to hope and pray that our ‘lil man’ will be found soon,” Jessica Mitchell and DeOrr Kunz Sr., the boy’s parents, said in a short written statement to EastIdahoNews.com.

DeOrr was last seen wearing cowboy boots, blue pajama pants and a camouflage jacket. Anyone with information is asked to call police.
