MAYWOOD, Illinois - The search for a missing one year old boy from Maywood, Illinois is continuing.

Authorities suspect Bryeon Hunter, who was the subject of an Amber Alert, was beaten to death by his mother and boyfriend.

A team of professional searchers joined crews in the Des Plaines River in hopes of finding the boy.

Bryeon Hunter has been missing since his mother reported him missing last week, prompting an Amber Alert.
Prosecutors say Lakeshia Baker and her boyfriend, Michael Scott, later admitted that the story was a cover-up.

Baker, 22, and Scott, 21, are charged with first-degree murder. Baker is being held without bond, while Scott is being held in lieu of $750,000 bond.
