Do you Know "Wylie's Angel"?

The small North Texas city of Wylie, Texas suffered a major shock last week when the body of an unknown 6 year old boy was found near Lake Lavon, Northeast of Dallas. The boy was apparently fed through a tube and had other major medical problems. There are no missing children fitting the description, and no one has come forward with information following the publishing of an artists rendering of what the boy looked like:

Artists rendering released by Wylie PDThe local CrimeStoppers and Shepp's Dairy have each offered $10,000 for information leading to the positive identification of the boy, and a local resident created a Facebook page. Most communities pull together in situations like this, and Wylie and the DFW Metroplex is no exception. My prayers go out the family of the little boy and to the community of Wylie, TX in hope they find out what happened to him.

If you have any information about this child, police ask you to call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1.800.843.5678.

Stories from WFAA TV, Dallas and CBS11TV were used to gather information on this story.
