AUSTIN, Man. — The distraught parents of a missing toddler in rural Manitoba have made a tearful plea to anyone with information to come forward.
Thomas and Destiny Martens made a brief appearance outside their home near Austin to ask anyone who may have taken their two-year-old son Chase to please return him.
Police have not ruled out foul play, but have said it is not the focus of their investigation.
The search for the little boy has expanded to include creeks and shorelines within three kilometres of the home.
Chase was last seen playing outside around suppertime on Tuesday.
The Martens say they are overwhelmed with the support they have received and only want the safe return of their son.
