“Please call 911 if you see Jude Leyton,” OPP East Region tweeted.
Frontenac OPP called in extra resources to help in the search for the youngster but “at this time, in order to preserve the area for the search, we are not seeking volunteers to assist.”
Just after 4 p.m., police tweeted that “while we appreciate the offer of help, volunteer searchers are not required at this time. Please avoid the area. Extra bodies could interfere with canine and aerial search. Parked civilian vehicles are actually blocking roads for emergency vehicles.”
Further updates would be made when available, police said.
