HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) – Community members came together Saturday, August 6, to continue searching for missing 4-year-old Codi Bigsby.

The group started their search this weekend at the Codi fence at the apartment complex in the Buckroe area of Hampton where he went missing.

A number of people from the community came out to the event organized by United We Stand Hampton Roads. Klalil Cribbs, President of United We Stand Hampton Roads, says they’re planning to expand searches into other cities until they’re able to bring Codi home.

“We’re still bringing awareness. We still out here canvassing,” said Cribbs. “A lot of people don’t know that Codi’s been missing. That’s he’s been missing. It will be 200 days on August 19th that he’s been missing.”

Cassie Stewart is one of the organizers of this weekend’s search. Cassie’s young nephew was killed and since then she’s worked to bring the stories of missing and murdered men, women, and kids to light.
She has a Tik-Tok, Cases with Cassie, where she shares stories of kids, like Codi.
Cassie says Codi’s case, though, is close to her heart and she hopes they can uncover anything that could help bring Codi home.

“These people are desperate to find Codi as it is as if they were his family,” said Stewart. “I hope if anything if the Bigsby family does see this they know that he is loved regardless beyond imagine and we’ve got him.”

Codi Bigsby was reported missing from his home in Hampton on January 31.

The group also organized a candlelight vigil to show support for Codi and his family on the 200th day since he was reported missing. Those interested in going to the event or getting involved can learn more here.
