AN infant who vanished three years ago has still not been found despite cops’ haunting request at the time of his disappearance.
Armaidre Argumon was just five weeks old when he was last seen on September 18, 2020.
The father claimed that somebody had taken the baby while he was under the influence of a mind-altering substance, KTRE reported.
Deandre wasn’t supposed to be watching the baby without supervision from Texas Child Protective Services.
He accused Armaidre’s mom of taking him, but authorities concluded this wasn’t possible due to her location at the time.
The father had been released from prison just three days before Armaidre vanished after serving time for a probation violation.
Cherokee County Sheriff Brent Dickson said that Deandre didn’t cooperate with law enforcement’s efforts to locate the baby.
At the time, Wells residents were asked to keep their eyes peeled for any fresh graves in the woods or near cemeteries.
The Amber Alert was discontinued in October 2020 despite Armaidre remaining missing.
In September 2021, Deandre reached a plea deal with prosecutors.
He pleaded guilty to child endangerment and was handed a 15-year prison sentence.
He also admitted to unauthorized use of a vehicle and got eight years for that.
He’s currently serving both sentences concurrently.
If evidence that Deandre committed another crime is found, authorities still have the option to prosecute him.
Anyone with information about Armaidre’s disappearance is asked to contact the Wells Police Department at (936) 867-5593.
The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department is also assisting with case and is accepting tips at (903) 683-2271.
Neither agency immediately responded to The U.S. Sun’s requests for comment.
