HAMPTON, Virginia, so… Little Codi Bigsby, age 4, went missing from Hampton one hundred days ago. A lot of people are still curious about his whereabouts.
Cory Bigsby filed a missing person report for his son Codi on January 31. Earlier that morning, at around 2 o’clock, Bigsby told police that Codi had last been seen in their house.
Even after more than 14 weeks, there is widespread community support for continuing the search for the kid.
Keitra Coleman Claimed on Tuesday that She had Looked in the Woods Near Codi’s House.
“It’s been a real roller coaster of emotions,” Coleman remarked. “We can’t provide any information at this time. From day one to day one hundred, we still don’t know what happened or where Codi is, in my opinion.”
Also helping in the search for Codi is Joe Slabinski of W.A.T.E.R. Team Inc., who has put in countless hours and travelled vast distances.
Slabinski vowed that the hunt would continue until the boy was found or turned in. “Because of this kid, we’re able to work together. Codi became like one of the gang to us, I guess. That’s why, I believe, viewers keep watching.”
Police in Hampton are looking into Codi’s disappearance, and his father is a person of interest. To this day, Bigsby is in jail on seven counts of child neglect that are unrelated to one another.
On Tuesday, a representative for the Hampton Police Division indicated that there had been no new developments in the investigation.
“It’s so much simpler to turn around and walk away and no longer be the voice out here for him,” Coleman said. I’m here to say, “Bring him home.”
Slabinski stated that they have spent 1,940 hours looking for Codi, plus an additional 106 hours organising and preparing their search. Hampton, Newport News, York County, Poquoson, Norfolk, and Chesapeake have all been visited.
According to Slabinski, they’ve dropped around $4000 on necessities like food, gear, gas, and tolls. He said that more than $2,400 had been given by generous members of the public.
Bigsby’s previous attorney, Jeffrey Ambrose, recused himself from the case on April 14 citing “an ethical conflict.”
Shortly after, Amina Matheny-Willard, a lawyer based in Norfolk, took over the position.
Bigsby has been in jail since last month, when a court refused to grant him bond. Bigsby was taken into custody by the police on February 3 — just five days after he reported Codi missing.
