Amber Alert for Missing Infant Canceled

Police are continuing the investigation into Delano Wilson's alleged abduction.

The Amber Alert for missing six-week-old Delano Wilson, who was reportedly abducted during an alleged robbery Wednesday afternoon, has been canceled.

IMPD says the Amber Alert which was issued Wednesday night has resulted in numerous tips, though none of the information received led to the discovery of Delano.  Missing Persons detectives say the Amber Alert message has reached its maximum audience.

IMPD says the investigation into Delano's alleged abduction will continue. 

"The cancellation of the Amber Alert does has no barring on the active investigation into Delano's abduction," IMPD said in a statement Friday.  "IMPD will continue to use all necessary resources and techniques to bring Delano back home.  Officers will continue to be on high alert but at this time no further searches are being planned.  If information is received which provides reliable information on a location of Delano or a suspect, IMPD will take immediate action."

Delano's father, 23-year-old Willie Wilson, told police he was robbed at gunpoint by a white man and Latina woman in the 1400 block of Henry Street around noon Wednesday.  He said he was hit by the handle of the gun and knocked unconscious.  When he came to, he said he saw Delano being taken away by the woman.

Anyone with information on Delano's whereabouts is asked to call 911 immediately or text 888777 with keyword "IMPD" and any relevant information.
