The search continues this morning for a missing Indianapolis baby who vanished nearly five days ago.

IMPD said Monday morning that the department's primary focus remains on finding 6-week-old Delano Wilson.

"We continue to, in smaller patterns, search the area," the department said. "We continue our public and internal announcements in search for Delano. We continue to ask the public for leads or information. We have no new plans for a massive search at this time, but if new information is discovered that could change.

The baby's family also isn't giving up hope that he'll be found.

It's now been more than four days since 6-week-old Delano Wilson disappeared. His father said the infant was taken by a couple who attacked him on Wednesday.

Sunday, family and friends launched a new search for the baby boy on the city's near-west side.

They said waiting for answers has been "torture" and pleaded with his alleged abductors to bring him home.

"It's heartbreaking because we don't have him here with us. He's the centerpiece to our family, you know what I mean. He's new to us. He's got so much love that we're ready to give, and we just want him back so that we can just give him all the love that we've been waiting to give him," said Lethrice Hamilton, Delano's aunt. "We're looking in bushes, going though poison ivy, all this stuff just to get him back. That's how much we love him. So we don't care how long it takes. We're going to find him. We're going to find him."

The family said they're thankful for the community's support and prayers.

Police canceled the Amber Alert for baby Delano Friday, but are still pursuing leads in the case.
