Milwaukee Police have been searching for a missing child since January 3rd.

He told a friend a cousin was going to pick him up but the family said they do know who that person is. 

“He was never seen getting into a car. His friend says he only saw Napoleon walk into a busy street," said Kongmeng, cousin. 

In the days leading up to his disappearance, Napoleon told his cousin he was chatting with someone through a Facebook group. 

“He was forced into a group and the group was gathering people like him," said Kongmeng, “He wouldn’t tell me what they gathering for.”

His family believes he may be with people from the Facebook group. In the last few days, family members have posted videos and messages on Facebook hoping he will see them and come back home. 

“Everyone is really looking for you and we are all really stressed out. I wish you come back soon and safely," said Kongmeng.
