BUCKEYE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

Buckeye police continue to search for a missing 10-year-old boy.

Drones and tracking dogs are now being used in the search for Jesse Wilson, and volunteers have also been assisting in the search effort.

Jesse slipped out of his home Sunday night. The boy's family said he has left home before but hasn't stayed out for an extended period.

Police released the audio of the call his mother, Crystal Wilson, placed after discovering that he was missing. Click/tap here to listen.

On Thursday, Wilson made a tearful plea for him to come home. She wanted Jesse to know that she and his siblings love him very much.

Right now, foul play is not being ruled out in this investigation.

The boy is described as black, 4 feet tall, 60 pounds and was last seen wearing a red shirt, shorts, black socks and black shoes.

Anyone who sees Jesse or knows where he might be is asked to contact the Buckeye Police Department at 623-349-6400.
