On July 7, 2020, Philadelphia Police say 2-year-old King Hill disappeared from 31st and Page streets in Strawberry Mansion. The toddler was last seen in the morning around 9:50 a.m.

Hill's stepfather planned to drop the toddler off at the mother Kimberly Hill's home. "Instead, the mom received a text from the stepfather that set off the search for her son. The stepfather said a babysitter had dropped off King," ABC 6 reports. The mother says this was the first time she's ever heard of this babysitter, the report adds.

According to ABC 6, at a news conference on Monday, Capt. Mark Burgmann says, "We've put a tremendous amount of resources to this, probably more resources than we've ever devoted to any other investigation I've had here in the past over 40 years."

Hill stands 3 feet tall and weighs 32 pounds. He has a light brown complexion, brown eyes, black hair and police say he has a thin build.

The FBI is also assisting the Philadelphia Police department. If you have any information, please contact the Philadelphia Police Special Victim"s Unit: 215-685-3251 or tips@phillypolice.com
