Chatham County Police Chief Jeff Hadley updated the Chatham County Commission Friday morning on the search for missing toddler Quinton Simon. Simon’s mother reported her 20-month-old son missing on Wednesday morning around 9:40 a.m. Simon was last seen by the mother’s boyfriend at 6 a.m.
A multi-agency task force, including Chatham County Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Savannah Police Department’s mounted patrol, Liberty County Sheriff’s Office bloodhounds, and Chatham Emergency Management Agency, have participated in the search. County dive teams, using waders and poles, also have participated in the search of a nearby pond.
“We’ve tried to use every available resource to get a better understanding of what’s happened with little Quinton,” said Hadley, emphasizing that they’ve exhausted the grid search of where he might have wandered. Hadley confirmed that CCPD still considers this a “missing person’s case.”
