'Let him come home': Father begs for help in search for 3-year-old Major Harris
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The father of 3-year-old Major Harris is pleading with the community to help find his son, almost a week since the boy was last seen.
Wednesday marked another day without answers for Major's family. On Wednesday afternoon, Major's father, Carlton Harris, held a news conference to ask the community for help.
"I don’t really know how I’m supposed to feel," Carlton Harris said. "I pray to God. Just bring my son and let him come home. Let me come get my son please."
Harris said someone knows something, and he is pleading with them to come forward.
"I haven't slept. I haven't really been eating," he said. "I'm begging y'all, please. If y'all know anything about my son and his whereabouts, please contact me and contact my family."
Milwaukee police said Tuesday they are hopeful Major is still alive, but they're not scheduling any new searches.
Major's mother, Mallery Muenzenberger, was found dead Thursday, Oct. 14. The suspect, Jaheem Clark, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Sunday, Oct. 17.
"All that any of us want here is to bring Major home safely," said Danielle Harris, Carlton's cousin.

Lowe said community members are currently helping house Major's relatives from out-of-state as they look for him. Lowe criticized the Milwaukee Office of Violence Prevention for not providing financial and emotional support. CBS 58 asked Office of Violence Prevention for a response but has not heard back.
Major is 3 feet tall, about 40 lbs., with brown eyes and shoulder-length black dreadlocks. Police say he was last seen wearing a dark blue T-shirt and navy blue Nike basketball shorts. He also has a speech impediment.
