A nine-year-old boy in Evangeline Parish is missing and now hundreds are searching for him.

KATC reports that Bryson Thibodeaux left his home in the Point Blue/Chataignier area around noon on Friday and has not been seen since then.

He left his home wearing a t-shirt and boxers. He has short hair and weighs 42 pounds.

If you see this young boy please contact police.

According to authorities, I am told that volunteers who wish to help in the search of Bryson can meet at the farmer's storage building on LA 104. The staging area is there.

We should note here too that authorities are asking property owners to check their property and trees. Bryson likes to climb and could have climbed up a tree and not be able to get down.

We will continue to follow this developing story.

Here is another photo of Bryson.
