Wetzel County

UPDATE: (11/16/20 3:30 p.m.) – New Martinsville Police Chief Tim Cecil says the child and his uncle could be headed to Atlanta, Georgia.

He also says when police tried to locate the uncle’s cell phone it was in the Charleston/Dunbar area of West Virginia.

Chief Cecil asks the public to be on the lookout for a silver or red Hyundai Accent. The red car will have a Georgia license plate RIW 3109.

Not sure if he’s in danger, but anytime he’s taken and it’s not his father or his mother than has him, so it’s not a good situation.
