It was reported that he may have been wearing grey shorts, black shoes and socks since these items were also missing.

The whole community searched areas around his home, including neighbors, and authorities. They searched on foot with K9s and by air with drones.  Nothing has turned up.

Detective Tamela Skaggs of Buckeye police says that this case is one that weighs heavily on the entire community. 

"We want to thank all the agencies that came out, the citizens that came out and helped us. This is a little boy that they don't know and they came out to help us look for him," said Skaggs. 

Any tips or information about Jesse's whereabouts should be submitted to the Buckeye Police Department tip line at 623-349-6411.
