After boy is taken by car thieves, police find body

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Police searching for a young boy who was inside a car when it was stolen in Mississippi say they believe the boy was killed.

Jackson police Commander Tyree Jones tells WLBT-TV (http://bit.ly/2qvFVpV ) that a body found inside the stolen car Thursday is believed to be that of 6-year-old Kingston Frazier.

Authorities across Mississippi spent much of Thursday morning searching for the boy after the car was stolen from a grocery store parking lot in Jackson.

Kingston was inside a silver 2000 Toyota Camry when the car was stolen outside a Kroger on Interstate 55 in Jackson about 2 a.m. Thursday. Hinds County sheriff's officials say the child's mother had left the car running with Kingston inside.

Police issued a child-abduction alert and sought help from the public to find the car and the child.
