An entire Amber Alert has been issued for an 18-month-old boy from Texas who is reportedly taken out of bed in the middle of the night.
Cedrick Jackson, who also visits CJ, was last seen shortly after eleven o'clock on Tuesday in his aunt's apartment on 9700-block Whitehurst Drive in Lake Highlands, according to the Dallas police.
He was put in temporary custody by Child Protective Services and brought him to bed after eleven o'clock on Tuesday evening and discovered him missing when she checked in at 6 o'clock in the morning and called the police.
Initially, a regional Amber Alert was issued for the child around noon, but it was upgraded to a state-wide warning by 10 p.m. that same evening. On Thursday morning he had been missing for more than 24 hours.
The police think he is in danger, but did not say why.

A child living in the same apartment said that someone who looked like Cedrick & step 39's grandfather, & # 39; was training at Cedrick overnight at some point, police said.
The police then established a man who matched that description, 47-year-old Harold Johnson, but the child was not in his possession. Johnson was arrested on unrelated warrants and is now in jail in Keller, Texas, according to WFAA.

Johnson's mother said he was the father of his aunt's friend.
She said her son would never take CJ and that he was home earlier with the family.
Police sources say there was a conflict between Johnson and the aunt prior to the kidnapping.
& # 39; We still do not know who has the child or who took the child, & # 39; said Maj. Max Geron, acting commander at the Criminal Investigations Bureau of the Dallas Police Department, Wednesday evening.
& # 39; I will tell you that at the moment we do not know if that suspect is the person in custody in Keller or if we are looking for another suspect who happens to be similar to that description, & # 39; Geron added.
& # 39; We still don't know who has the child or who took the child & # 39 ;, said Maj. Max Geron from the Dallas Police Department Wednesday night
& # 39; As a mother it is the scariest feeling in the world. It's really scary, and I just want him to be safe, ”said Cedrick & # 39; s mother Dishundra Thomas

& # 39; As a mother it is the scariest feeling in the world. It's really scary and I just want him to be safe. I want him to know where he is, that I love him. We love him and hope he is safe, "said DiShundra Thomas, Cedrick's mother.
The Dallas police gave no reason for Cedrick's placement in the aunt's custody. But Cedrick & # 39; s mother said the placement was temporary and not against her will, according to Dallas News.
& # 39; We just want our son to be back, & # 39; Thomas said outside the Dallas police station on Wednesday. & # 39; He is not yet two years old. I just want him at home. & # 39;
Thomas said she was suspicious about the story of Cedrick & # 39; s aunt.
Cedrick is black and has braided hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing only a diaper
& # 39; As for her version of the story, I really don't know how to wrap my head around it, & # 39; said Thomas. & # 39; I'm just surprised that a child can be caught in the middle of the night without anyone hearing anything, a child sleeping in your bed next to you. & # 39;
