Relatives of missing SC boy ask for public's helpRelatives of missing SC boy ask public to help find child who has been missing for a month
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) ' The grandmother of a missing 18-month-old South Carolina boy is asking the public to help find the toddler.
Jocelyn Jennings Nelson pleaded with the public at a news conference in Columbia on Friday. She says Amir is a very happy child who enjoys music. She thanked the public for their support and prayers.
Police Chief Randy Scott says officers are tracking down leads.
The boy's mother, Zinah Jennings, was reported missing in early December. She got into a wreck on Christmas Eve, and when police asked about her son, she initially told them she didn't have a child.
Police say she has given other conflicting statements about what she did with Amir. She is in jail on charges of lying to police.
