Search efforts have extended throughout Yakima with law enforcement agencies from across the region and federal teams such as the FBI contributing to the search. To this point, no concrete leads have been made public, but the family refuses to give up its search.

Just days ago, Lucian turned 5. Loved ones and supporters gathered at Sarg Hubbard Park, where he disappeared on Sept. 10, to honor the little boy and spread awareness about his disappearance.
