Search for Baby Levon hits Day Seven

By NEWSChannel 2 Staff

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Police and search teams continue to look for any clues that could lead them to the whereabouts of missing baby Levon Wameling.

Tuesday marked Day Seven of the search. His father, Jevon Wameling told police that the nine month old baby was last seen on the porch of their Jay Street home in Utica roughly 18 days ago.

Utica Police say Jevon Wameling has stopped cooperating with them since their initial questioning and has since obtained a lawyer. He was noticeably absent from both the search for the baby as well as the vigil held outside the home Monday night. The baby's mother, Amy Warney was in attendance at the vigil Tuesday night.

Many questions still remain unanswered in the case, one of the biggest being why Jevon waited two weeks to admit that the baby was gone.

On Tuesday, Utica firefighters once again joined the search and are expected to help out all week. It is the largest group of searchers yet, searching the biggest area so far in the case.

"They are still in the general area, just widening it out, little by little, being very thorough," said Sgt Steve Hauck of the Utica Police Department.
