HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — Nearly two weeks after Codi Bigsby was first reported missing, police spent several hours on the scene near his house on Saturday night.
Community members tell 10 On Your Side’s Jon Dowding that a child’s jacket and tire tracks were seen on the ground near Codi Bigsby’s home. A woman was reportedly searching in the area when she came across the jacket.
Witnesses say it took several hours for the police to arrive on the scene.
When authorities arrived on the scene, they searched the area before using police tape to block it off. Forensics and K9 dogs later arrived on the scene.
About two hours after first arriving on the scene, police began clearing the area. Community members immediately began to search the same area.
Organizers are also working to collect Valentine’s Day cards for Codi. A box has been dropped off in his apartment complex for people to drop cards. Another box will be placed at the soccer fields.
