KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) — The search for a missing 8-year-old boy expands to the Kansas City metro.

Agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in Vancouver, Washington, searched a home in June of 2022 after members of the community became concerned for the welfare of 8-year-old Breadson John. The boy also goes by the name “Brxsan.”

He was not at the home, and agents have not been able to locate the child.

Vancouver police say Breadson’s grandparents were his last known guardians.

In a statement posted online last month, Vancouver police said prosecutors charged Breadson’s grandparents with custodial interference and are suspects in his disappearance.

Since June 2022, Vancouver Police Detectives have attempted to contact multiple family members to determine if Breadson is with family or is truly missing. To date, the family members that have been contacted have not provided investigators information related to the whereabouts of Breadson and he has not been located.
