The boy's mother, Melinda Duckett, told police intruders cut through a screen window in their home in Leesburg just after she put him to bed, reports the paper.

Two weeks later, she committed suicide. Her family claimed she suffered emotional distress after appearing on the Nancy Grace Show.

Friends and family gathered Wednesday for a candlelight vigil to mark the eight years since Trenton's disappearance.

The image depicts the boy age-progressed to 9 years, according to NCMEC. The center describes him as biracial, Asian and white, with a small mark over his left eye.

Anyone with information about his disappearance should call the Leesburg Police Department at 1-352-787-2121 or 1-800-THE-LOST.
