The Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's assistance in finding a missing child.

According to a post on the department's Facebook, the child is missing from the neighborhood of Jerusalem Heights south of Tuscaloosa off Jug Factory Road.

Please share their post and the child's picture so he can be found as quickly as possible, and stay tuned to this site and station for more news as it develops.

 

EDITOR'S NOTE: an earlier version of this story mistakenly reported the child was missing from Holt, not Jerusalem Heights. We regret the error.
