Sgt. Johnny Williams, a police spokesman, said officers were acting on a tip. Yet he said police have searched every apartment and car in the complex and have not identified the child who relatives called “Cupcake.”

A man and a woman were arrested and charged with crimes that police said were unrelated to the disappearance of the child, described as persons of interest. But police said they didn’t know where the child could be.
