MADISON COUNTY, Ala. – The Madison County Sheriff’s Office says Diesel Plaster has been found and appears to be okay. Investigators are speaking with the child now.
The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency has also cancelled the Missing Child Alert issued this morning.
The Madison County Sheriff’s office described Diesel Plaster as being white, with brown hair, brown eyes, and was last seen wearing blue jeans, a plaid shirt, and carrying a camouflage backpack. Diesel stands 4’5″ tall and weighs 75 lbs.
Investigators say Diesel’s family contacted the sheriff’s office around 5:45 Wednesday afternoon. They say he left their home on Whippoorwill Drive without permission two times yesterday. The first time, a family friend caught up with him quickly and got him back home. The second time, though, no one could find him.
His family says his last known location was the Dollar General on Ryland Pike. They believe he was there around 5:00 p.m.
The sheriff’s office and volunteers searched extensively for Diesel Wednesday night. Neighboring law enforcement agencies and school resource officers have been alerted to Diesel’s disappearance.
