UPDATE: Search for Missing Six-Year-Old in Aurora
Aurora Police are asking for the public's help as they search for a six-year-old boy who went missing Saturday night near Olympic Park in the city.
Police are saying that they believe six-year-old David Puckett voluntarily left the location, and that they don't believe foul play was involved in his disappearance.
According to the Aurora Police Department Facebook page, David is described as a white male who is just over three feet tall and weighs 55 pounds. He also has brown hair and brown eyes, and was last seen wearing green camouflage pants along with a black shirt, black boots, and a light girls Army style jacket.
Officials say that this isn't the first time he has wandered away from home.
The Aurora Police Department has set up three tip lines for the public to call in case they have any information that can result in the return of David to his family. The numbers that can be called are:
