UPDATE: New information released into missing Perry County child investigation

Perry County, Kentucky - Update: 2/18/14

New information was released Tuesday about the investigation of a child who was found on a strip job last week in Perry County.

Sheriff's Deputies say they believe due to the distance from the home and terrain, someone might have picked up Aiden Wallen and dropped him off at the site.

Last Wednesday, the three-year-old went missing from a home in the Dwarf Community while his step-mother was reportedly taking a nap.

The child suffered only minor cuts from briars.

Deputies ask if you have seen anyone pick up Wallen to give them a call at (606) 439-4523.
