A Texas boy who was the subject of an Amber Alert was found dead at a landfill in the Dallas area, according to local reports.

When an Amber Alert was issued in May, Waterloo Region police emergency call centres received at least 10 complaint calls about alerts appearing on their cellphones and televisions.

The toddler had recently been placed in the temporary custody of his aunt, who told police she put the boy to bed shortly after 11 p.m. on Tuesday and discovered him missing at around 6 a.m. Wednesday.

Police identified the relative as a step-grandfather, 47-year-old Harold Johnson.

Detective Gary Harvey told reporters that, given how much time has passed, the police were concerned that grandpa and the boys can go far away from Toronto, and at some point reached that has been notified by the border service of the USA.

Police then located a man matching that description, 47-year-old Harold Johnson, but the child was not in his possession. He is described as 30 inches tall, weighing 20 pounds, and has black hair with braids.

York police, in consultation with Ontario Provincial Police, issued an Amber Alert for the boys about 90 minutes earlier, around 3 a.m. ET.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call 911 or the Dallas police at 214-671-4268. He was reported missing Wednesday morning. That person is now in jail in Keller, Texas on unrelated warrants.

"He's dead", she said. We love him, and we hope that he's safe, ' DiShundra Thomas, Cedrick's mother, said. The suspect was last heard from in Dallas, according to police.

'We just want our son back, ' Thomas said outside Dallas police headquarters Wednesday. A press conference was planned for Thursday afternoon.

She said the boy was gone when she woke up in the middle of the night, but couldn't explain how someone got into her home.
