NorCal Authorities Seek Public's Help In Search For Missing Toddler

SACRAMENTO (CBS SF) -- The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department is asking the public's assistance in the search of a 22-month-old boy who was reported missing.   Dwight Stallings is unaccounted for during the last eleven months and has not been seen by family members since sometime in April of 2011.

Law enforcement was recently advised of the toddler's circumstances, and is aggressively trying to learn the whereabouts the child.

Sheriff's detectives were working with the Elk Grove Police Department, as well as Child Protective Services, both of whom have had contact with the baby's mother, Tanisha Edwards, throughout the course of this investigation.

Edwards is currently in custody at the Sacramento County Main Jail for a violation of her probation.

Edwards has been unable to give law enforcement authorities any information that would lead to the location of the missing child. Detectives believe he may possibly be living under a different name.

The Sheriff's Department is asking anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Baby Dwight to immediately contact the Sheriff's Communications Center at (916) 874-5115.
